Image via WikipediaWe have had the pleasure to work with Debbie Pease a number of times to promote healthy, safe, and extended child birth options here in South Dakota. We want to ensure that the families of South Dakota have the right to choose how they want to bring their babies into this world. This includes the right to choose a midwife or a home birth, and have that okay-ed by both a doctor and at least partially covered by your insurer. Next week, new legislation on child birth options in South Dakota goes to vote by our legislators.
We want you to be able to choose how you want to create your family. We support midwifery as a safe and alternate practice and hope you take the time to click through some of the links that we have provided so you can be educated and make sure your local and state legislators know your feelings on the matter as well. There is a great discussion going on right now about this over at this link!
Here's a few links for you to check out and I do hope you help support this important legislation. Also, tomorrow in Pierre, there will be a presentation on the bill and midwives in South Dakota. If you are in the area, check it out! There will also be a hearing on the bill on February 3rd.
Always remember, 'There are thousands of dollars to be saved by simply giving mothers better care'.
