ESCbC is closing due to astronomical insurance fees. It is the only freestanding birth center in NYC. Please help me send a message to NY law makers:

Thank you,

I tried to do it but I only got their main page and couldn't find the petition by searching either. Could you repost it?

What a shame! I hope it doesn't close! It would be a horrible loss.

I'm a NYer living in California. I can't sign the petition because I am no longer a resident.

Something has GOT to be done about this medical malpractice insurance thing--this would be a terrible loss. It's where I went to bfing support group and met two wonderful lactation consultants.

I read this too and just sent out a mass email to all my girls in NYC - hopefully some will come and sign!
