Hi mamas,<br><br>
I am an MDC member of almost 3 years, a mom of 1 ds (28 months), and an academic. I'm working a book about law and politics of midwifery care and home birth. I currently live in Des Moines, Iowa, but I'm researching this topic in a variety of geographical areas - I recently got a grant that will enable me to do face-to-face interviews in the midwest, and telephone interviews with people located elsewhere in the United States.<br><br>
In states where homebirth midwifery is legal, I’d like to learn more about insurance requirements, licensing laws, political and legal obstacles to your practice, and other things that you feel are important in a discussion of the politics and law of homebirth midwifery. Where homebirth midwifery isn't legal (or has a tenuous legal status), I'd like to interview midwives about the legal barriers to their practice, as well as the ways they have tried to change the laws about homebirth midwifery care.<br><br>
If you are interested in perhaps being interviewed for this study, please PM me with your email address. Before you agree to an interview, we will discuss confidentiality, attribution of quotations, my timeline for the work, and any questions you have.<br><br><br>
Thanks in advance!<br><br>
-Renee

Hi,<br>
You may want to contact the Florida School of Traditional Midwifery and Jana Borino. She was active getting our law and rule and knows others who helped get Midwifery legal again in 1992.<br>

I know that many midwives are strugglng with legal and political issues - especially in states where legality is uncertain or unavailable. I'd really appreciate the chance to speak with you.
