    Just in case any of you have not seen the new ACOG position on planned home birth.

    They are having to respond and become supportive of women’s choice. They are still refusing to include the CPM per se… but they have worded their position to include (without saying so) the MEAC and Midwifery Bridged CPM (this is a direct result of the MERA).

    This is precisely WHY the PEP CPM should consider the Midwifery Bridge Certificate. We all need to do CEUs for recertification any way… so let’s just do it gals. We can continue to show our local community that we are striving for the best education & training while honoring the tradition of Direct Entry Midwifery.

    I’m going to do it. I hope each of you will consider it, too!
