Gindele Family Chiropractic started this petition to Lee Memorial Health Systems System Credentialing/Privileging Committee

Chiropractic has proven to assist many women with optimal pelvic alignment throughout their pregnancies. Many would love the opportunity to have their chiropractor present during their labor, delivery or after the birth to check their pelvic and spinal alignment. In addition to their medical team, they currently are able to have other service providers such as Doula's and Midwives present in the hospital, but in Lee County, they can not have their chiropractor present for any part of their labor and delivery. This prohibition is due to the hospital systems by-laws completely omitting chiropractic. The bylaws have just undergone revisions and once again, Doctors of Chiropractic (DC's) are not mentioned anywhere, therefore, inhibiting chiropractors from even being allowed to apply for rights to see their patients. This petition is to support a formal request to amend the bylaws as currently written to allow for chiropractors to have the right to apply for hospital privileges to see their own patients while going through labor and delivery.
