<p>Hello,</p>
<p>Earlier this year, the status of direct entry midwives was in jeopardy due to a proposed law that was moving quickly through our state legislature.  Thankfully, as soon as word got out - the calls and letters to Jackson, MS prevented the law from making it through.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now, our legislators are returning to Jackson.  Mississippi Friends of Midwives is supporting legislation that will license CPM and thus create a legal career path for direct entry midwives in our state.  CNM's can not attend home births in MS.  So, our only option for saving out of hospital birth is by passing legislation that defines the role of the CPM in our maternity care system.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We are hosting a "Push Party" to kickoff the 2011 legislative session.</p>
