I’m still pretty stoked about the fact that we now have a birth center in Springfield, Missouri! It’s so great to see new options for healthy birth opened up to families across the area. I’m also really proud of my friend, Mary, for working so hard for SO many things midwifery-related. Really, if you’ve used a legal midwife in Missouri in the past 5 years, you have Mary to thank among the handful who got that ridiculous law changed. And I know she’s been thinking about this birth center for a while, and to see her dreams come to fruition makes me happy too.
