I'd love to hear the point of view of our MDC homebirth mamas about the role of men in homebirth advocacy. My state and especially my city is facing a homebirth healthcare crisis because two prominent MW are no longer practicing. There is significant momentum, as a result, to push for our state to recognize the CPMs.
One of the main advocacy groups and the group that I believe drafted the main petition, did the hiring of lobbyists, found a sponsor, and etc. is led by a man. I am uncomfortable with the structure of organization to begin with (it has a president, secretary and all that - very much NOT what drew me to HB) but especially with the lead role being occupied by a man. I want to become more involved so I guess I need to work through my objections to this.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
