Lexington, Kentucky needs more midwives February 18, 2007

Posted by guinever in : midwifery, pregnancy , trackback

Currently, Lexington, Kentucky has only one certified nurse midwife with admitting privileges. If you want more midwives in Lexington, please sign this petition. Doctors and hospitals do not think there is a need for midwives. The evidence for this lies in the fact that a midwife was fired from an area hospital and not replaced. Certified Nurse Midwives have applied for jobs in several doctor’s offices and told their patients do not want midwives.

If you live in the Lexington, Kentucky area and would like more midwifery care options, please sign the petition.
