I just found out tonight that a CNM from Baltimore has a serious plan to open a new FREE STANDING BIRTH CENTER in Baltimore. This will be a wonderful and needed facility. The loss a few years ago of the Baltimore Birth Center meant that there was nothing available in Northern Maryland for OOH birth other than home birth (and that hard to come by as so few midwives are offering it). So I was very excited to hear that and had to share! I won't give you any other details, but just keep your prayers, thoughts and energies directed on success in this new endeavor!!!!
