hello, dear motheringdotcommune friends! i was so excited to find you here, doing an online search to find out if anyone else is outraged that tennessee laws only support and protect the mom breastfeeding a baby under 12 months. i am sam, a 31-year old mother of one almost-15-month old boy named ethan. i am a nurse midwife, and teach in the midwifery program at vanderbilt university. lots of challenges in this state, as i am not a typical "CNM" and professor, but a down home, cloth diapering, esclusive breastfeeding, homebirthing, healthy eating, mama and have to try to teach in the current climate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> i am looking forward to joining all of you, learning, sharing, supporting and being supported in this all-important journey of motherhood. thanks for being there! i will check out the threads and chime in soon, in all my free time...<br>
sam

I just moved from Memphis TN. I had my son at home there, with the help of a wonderful CNMW. The climate in west TN is definitely not pro-midwife. Glad to know there are instructors working on improving it!
