I Was Born at Home in Ohio
Ohio Needs Certified Professional Midwives
Out-of-hospital birth is a reality in Ohio, with well over 1000 babies born at home in Ohio last year. Families are having home births and will continue to do so.
It is in the interest of public safety to establish a benchmark credential--the CPM--for midwives who practice out-of-hospital through licensure. Licensing midwives who can demonstrate that they have met the requirements for competent practice is the best way to ensure that those families who choose out-of-hospital birth will have access to the safest possible care.
