We are moving forward, slowly but steadily. We are working with our
sponsor Kay Khan. We hear that the Representative who has a hold on
our bill (Pedone of Worcester) is considering a compromise that will make him more
comfortable with some of the provisions. So keep showing support for
your midwives: it’s as vital as ever!!!!!
Rep. Khan has been so diligent advocating for us and getting signatures – she is dogged, determined and wonderful! Please know your calls are having great effect and really getting through the message that families care about their midwives.
Keep the calls and letters coming!
Anyone in Rep. Khan’s district should contact her to let her know how much we appreciate her fantastic advocacy for midwives.
And finally, for those who saw the video, the complete version was uploaded to be viewed now. Send it around to inspire more people to call!!
