Every day we hear about the dangers of cancer, heart disease and AIDS. But how many of us realize that, in much of the world, the act of giving life to a child is still the biggest killer of women of child-bearing age?

-- Liya Kebede

* The message of our campaign is "Make every mother and child count". This campaign is not just about health. It is also a powerful call for radical progress in women's rights and the rights of their children. Too often, the health of mothers and children does not count. In too many parts of the world, they are forgotten.

Our entire community is better when women and families are supported and heard while preparing for and during birth. Working cooperatively with CNM's is a win-win situation.

I had the opportunity to work with Liz McDaniel, CNM, for the past 6 years. She is no longer facilitating births. I know that her previous clients and the community miss this service and the midwifery model of care.

I'm expecting my first grandchild and I want it to be born in a safe comfortable setting, my daughter-in-law would like a midwife present--and I'm scared for her and the baby if it is born at their home--their only choice at this time. Please hurry approve this--due in May!

After having three birthing experiences which each had their individual issues,I feel that women deserve and need as many choices as possible while still being within the safety of the hospital
