Leaving in 4 hours
Obama's three health care reform principles include: reducing costs, guaranteeing choice, and providing quality, affordable health care. He is committed to passing reform bills that will guarantee these three principles. As we all know, midwifery is capable of providing all of these things.
CPMs have been working tirelessly for the last 15 years: creating the CPM credential, accrediting our schools, jumping through all the necessary hoops to be legitimate on a national level. Now we are here and ready to join the bigger system. Please support the MAMA campaign by reading the website, MAMA Campaign, helping us to raise the necessary funds to support our staff, and mobilizing our consumer base when the time is right. We can use constituents in Washington DC as well as in our districts to meet with Health Aides to introduce who we are and how we can help improve maternity care in this country. Ask your local midwifery or doula organization to endorse the campaign. By becoming an endorser, your organization will agree to raise $1000 by September 1, 2009 for the MAMA Campaign. You can sign up to be an endorser on the website. We will list you as an endorser and as our coalition grows, so will our hope to recognize CPMs on the federal level. We can do it!!
