Did you know that Certified Professional Midwives CANNOT LEGALLY PRACTICE HOMEBIRTH in 22 STATES!!! Including North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Nevada, Kansas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maryland, Hawaii, and Guam.
The CPM credential was first issued in 1994 by the North American Registry of Midwives to midwives with specialized training and expertise in providing safe, skilled maternity care in out-of-hospital settings.
Don’t let our precious California become a state where qualified midwives cannot practice homebirth legally. It endangers mothers and it endangers babies.
Come out for a lovely rally of support for licensed midwives. This Tuesday the 25th from 12pm to 1pm, rain or shine on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall (Goodlett steps facing Civic Center Plaza) to support Homebirth with a Licensed Midwife!!
