Self Inflicted Controversy: CPMs Under Fire

I found profound insight from a fellow Michigan mom and blogger that expresses the reason CPMs have no one to blame but themselves for being under scrutiny.  Her post also notes many double standards running amok in conversations about birth.  

The links below are an accurate observation of where NARM has led its midwives.  This is precisely why regulations are needed for those pretending to regulate themselves.  Please also see the related post entitled, What We're Seeking Defined Scope of Practice, to hear from midwife apprentices about the need for improved standards.  

Navelgazing Midwife: Succinct Reasons CPMs/DEMs Need to Get Their Act Together 

The links below represent a collection of resources where you can learn more about proposed bills currently in MI's legislature.  I encourage you to become familiar with the issues at hand and take action to ensure safer practices and improved standards for all Michigan Midwives.  

Next week Wed, look for a post entitled: Tell me about this credential: "CPM or Certified Professional Midwife" for more on this topic from student midwives.
