I’m reposting this from the comments of another post here:
I’m on the steering committee for Friends of Iowa Midwives, a new(ish!) organization working to promote access to VBACs and out of hospital birth through legislation. We are starting a central Iowa chapter and would love for you to add this great group to your resources page and if you can, post about an upcoming meeting on your blog.
We are hoping to bring together women in the Des Moines area to support our legislative efforts in the 2009 session. The first meeting for the central chapter will be held TODAY, Nov 8 at Almost Home birth center in Des Moines at 3:30. Interested women can learn more at our website, friendsofiowamidwives.org, and sign up for the mailing list there. Thanks!!
