Orlando area midwife service helps pregnant women deliver healthy babies -- OrlandoSentinel.com

If you don't feel like reading the story, the gist is that my county is starting a program to provide CNM services to low-income or non-insured women, and the results have been great! The c-section rate is below 10% and there are fewer low-birth weight babies.

I'm thinking about calling to see if they need any help, just with paperwork or something like that. I want to become a CNM and I think it would be a good experience. I just need to build up the cajones to call.

I've heard about this prgram! I think they were inspired by another orlando midwife, a CPM- who specifically works with low income women, mainly african american. She has also had amazing results with raising birthweight and mama's health.

You should certainly call!
