Wanted: Physicians to Sign Letter Supporting Birth Centers
By Christine Cupaiuolo — March 20, 2009
Know a consultant/collaborating physician for a freestanding birth center or midwife practice? Then ask that physician to sign this letter to Congress showing support for federal legislation that would restore Medicaid funding to birth centers.
The American Association of Birth Centers, which has been lobbying on this issue (read our previous posts), is seeking at least 100 physician signatures by March 31. They’re well on their way, but we’d like to help push them over.
Here’s how to sign on:
1. Email the letter to aabc AT birthcenters DOT org
2. Fax it to 215-234-8829
3. Call 866-54-BIRTH (24784) or 215-234-8068
4. Read and sign the letter online.
Please spread the news. Thanks!
I know a few people I can pass this on to who may sign it. Is this for a national acceptance or would it be state by state? PS I just saw on the right column that there is a menopause version of our bodies our selves. I had the original and this will be great to deal with those sleepless night. I’ll be reading your posts regularly
The funding is a national issue. Thanks!
