Make Way for Midwives
The midwives make an appearance in Political Fix because of their recent visit to the Capitol. Midwifery is now legal in Missouri, so the midwives aren’t lobbying for anything. They just came to say thanks:
“We’re not asking for more,” Missouri Midwives Association former president Debbie Smithey said.
She said the next step for them is to “see what it’s like to practice legally.”
They fought long and hard to get here, and thanks to their efforts Missourians all have a little more freedom.
