Contact AZ Dept of Health to allow licensed midwives to attend home VBAC

    1. Petition by

      Queen Creek, AZ

The Arizona Dept of Health currently is not allowing women their right to choose the setting and professional of their choice for birth if the woman has experienced a VBAC in the past. We are petitioning AZDHS to change this decision and allow women full freedom of choice. We are collecting names from this online petition to add to a separate written petition that we will be submitting to the Arizona Dept of Health.

      I believe it is your decision to have a child and you should be able birth your child the way you want! Government shouldn't have any choice in that.

      As both a VBAC (x2) mom and a midwife, I strongly support the reproductive choices of all women and the right to avoid unnecessary surgery.

      I had exceptional care (better than any MD I've experienced) with my homebirth midwives. All women should have the right to choose that care if they wish.

      I love my midwife and would be crushed if she could not help me birth my next child simply because I have had a c-section.

      I had successful home births in Virginia and Arizona. I thank God for the wonderful midwives who successfully delivered both of my babies at home regardless of the complications!
