It's time. The climate is ripe for change in Maternity care in the USA. But it must be demanded by you and all women across the country.
It is our collective voice that speaks the loudest. When we unite together for a common and an extraordinary cause, a future vision for childbearing women and their babies, we can not be ignored - there is strength in numbers. The call for action is this: Midwives as the first choice in maternity care in the USA, not doctors.
Doctors have their place in obstetrics, but midwives and their intuitive level of expertise in assisting women through pregnancy and birth is unmatched by the medical community.
We need to hear your voice and raise awareness in the minds of other childbearing women. We need to stand tall and demand it to those who are resistant. We want midwives to care for us and birth our babies nation wide! It is our right as childbearing women!
If you were assisted by a midwife, or want to be cared for by a midwife during your pregnancy and upcoming birth, or you are a midwife, or anyone who respects midwives, share it here by signing the petition. The medical community needs to hear us.
