Victory for NY Midwives
We’d like to congratulate our friends at Birthnet of the Finger Lakes for the passage of the Midwifery Modernization Act, which was signed into law by Governor Paterson yesterday. As Birthnet explains, “This legislation will increase access to midwifery care for women all over New York State and it will not cost the state anything.”
As it turns out, people who like sharing also like midwives. Some of our most active Share Tompkins organizers and participants have had home births with midwives! Below are photos taken at our January Really Really Free Market at the Henry St. John Building as part of the Birthnet’s “Free Our Midwives” photo project.
