this last month my family participated in a rally at the Oregon state capital. the midwives were there, rallying for lower requirements, and we were protesting them. you see, in Oregon, no midwife is required to carry a license, and many do is one of only two states that allow this. To further iterate- that means ANYONE can say "i am a midwife" and charge money to attend human births. that means there is NO regulation for these woman and no accountability or consequences if they make mistakes. we protested along family who have buried babies, families that have babies who are permanently damaged from their births and woman who are permanently damaged from their births. we have a huge bunch of 37 balloons , representing babies that have died, or been injured and mothers who have lost their wombs in their homebirth are pictures from the event
