Midwifery is very interesting in terms of the history and the politics - especially when it comes to how midwives almost disappeared in the U.S and why birth with midwives is not considered the "norm" when the rest of world uses midwives! Here are some links about the current state of midwifery in our world:
The Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA)
The North American Registry of Midwives (NARM)
Citizens for Midwifery
American College of Nurse-Midwives
The Homebirth Summit
The Big Push for Midwives
Arizona Department of Special Licensing
THINGS TO BUY
If you are a big reader like me, than you will want to get your hands on some good reading material as you research and prepare for birth so here is my Amazon reading list.
I also have a full lending library so if you aren't ready to commit to buying, ask if I have it on hand to lend!
SHOPPING LIST IDEAS
If you are looking for additional items that I love for my families to use either during pregnancy or for the birth and postpartum period, here is THIS Amazon list. Have so much fun treating yourself this pregnancy (or putting these items on your celebration party gift list as ideas for others). Let me know if you think I should add any items to this list!
