At a M.O.M. meeting in December, Senator Jack Hatch mentioned wanting to sponsor legislation to "legalize" alternative health care in Iowa. Apparently, followed through! The bill has been co-sponsored by Hatch (self-described "liberal democrat") and Senator Nancy Boettger (republican).

Tuesday, Larry Hanus of the Iowa Health Freedom Coalition and a couple of others were on Jan Mickelson's show on WHO Radio promoting SF 2095, the "Iowa Health Freedom Act". I didn't actually hear the program at the time, but you can download the podcast on the WHO Radio website; scroll down to Tuesday.

I've only skimmed the legislation so far, but it looks to me like this might provide a legitimate "in" for Direct Entry Midwives! (Iowa law doesn't make midwifery illegal, but the courts have ruled against non-CNMs.)

IHFC is sponsoring an education day at the capitol on MONDAY, February 13, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. I'm very excited, and I'm going to try to be there.
