It's a Wrap

According to Families for Missouri Midwives, the MO Supreme Court overturned the ruling yesterday that outlawed the new midwifery law- so CPMs are now legal in Missouri! I can scarcely believe it. This has been such a long time coming- more than 20 years in the making. Go to FOMM to read the details. This is a huge victory for the families of Missouri and for MO midwives. The Supreme Court found that AMA (American Medical Association) had no standing in the case and set aside their appeal that blocked the new law. Wow. How this will all play out, I have no idea, but this decision is huge. You can also read about it at Big Push. Now the real work begins: how will CPMs be regulated, and by whom?
