PUSH Alert re: Health Care & CPMs

The Big Push Campaign is seeking signatures on a new petition to support the inclusion of CPMs in health care reform. (This petition relates in part to opposition to CPMs that I posted about last week.)
PUSH TO OPEN Health Care Reform to
Certified Professional Midwives!

Today, right now, please go to

BE THE PERSON whose signature and whose action on behalf of out-of-hospital maternity care
pushes the button to open health care reform to Certified Professional Midwives!

One Minute to Sign It, One Minute to Push It On

Go to today to sign your name
to support including Certified Professional Midwives and out-of-hospital maternity care in federal health care reform. Then, help spread the word about the PushPetition to others.

It is so very important for us to show members of Congress (who continue to draft bills this week and next!) that there is widespread support for Certified Professional Midwives and out-of-hospital maternity care across our country.

If you are a midwife, doula, or childbirth educator, please send to your clients since they will always be the biggest supporters. Please post to other groups. We want to raise the roof with 10,000 signatures. Do your part -- sign today and PUSH it out to others! Share with friends, colleagues, post to Facebook and all your yahoo groups.

Incorporating CPMs into federal health care reform is something that both Democrats AND Republicans have been able to get behind in Washington.
They understand it will not only save lots of money, but also improve the health of mothers and babies.

Thank you!!!!
