Victory for New York State Women, Families and Midwives!

by admin on July 31, 2010

Governor Paterson signed the Midwifery Modernization Act into law!

Congratulations and a thousand thanks to each and every one of you who called, faxed, emailed or passed the action alert along to friends and family these past nine months. This has been an amazing journey and we are proud to have made it with so many dedicated and motivated citizens! You made it happen! An example of democracy at its finest.

Celebrate!  You deserve it!

Isn’t fitting that it took nine months! You might say our midwives are “born again”. Congratulations!!

What absolutely wonderful news! We are all breathing a huge sigh of relief here in the Netherlands. Congratulations!

I am pregnant with my first child in NYC and SO RELIEVED AND HAPPY !! I wish I would have known about these issues beforehand so I could have done more — but thank you to everyone who worked so hard to change the law! I can’t wait to learn more.
