I haven’t heard anything about how Obama’s National Health Care Plan is going to affect prenatal care, infant care, midwives across America & our maternity system as a whole. Does anyone know the restrictions that will be put into place that will affect our birthing options & Doctor vs Midwife choice?

I know people here in my state are working hard to make sure that birthcenters and midwifes are available through medicare. There is a bill as a part of this all that is trying to make it such. I would encourage everyone to call their legislatures and tell them that you would like to see that happen. Rachel
