Things looking good for midwifery licensure

Members of the Illinois General Assembly are starting to see the advantages of licensing midwives. This is very good for us. We are continuing to work on our plan for January 12 and 13, and we look forward to rallying with dozens of home birth supporters.

Can we make that hundreds?

Please pass on the news and importance of this rally. We need this to be the largest yet! Try your best to attend and invite everyone you know who is supportive of home birth!

Thank you for all your past support, and let's take this all the way!

Help make Illinois the 25th state to legally recognize certified professional midwives!

for home birth midwives

Show the AMA &
ACOG who's in charge of your baby's birth
Come to the Illinois Capitol Jan
12 or 13, 2009

(use search terms S. 2nd St. and E. Monroe St., Springfield, IL 62701 and bring quarters for the parking meters, or walk just 3 short blocks from the Amtrak train station!)

Recent developments have made passage of a bill to license certified professional midwives in Illinois more likely than ever before! 

We are holding a two-day rally to show Illinois legislators that we need midwives, and we need them now. Please invite everyone you know. Come one day or both. Bring your children, your babies, your sister, and your friend. Just be there -- to make history!

**Before you leave for the rally, visit Legislator Lookup to find your state representative, so you can lobby your state representative.**

Hope to see you there!
