Moments of truth are personal. They happen in different ways for everyone, and for different reasons. Have you ever wondered about the way other people approach their health and their care? Below, check out stories from real people like you about their experiences with the US health care system and with midwifery care. You can also share your own here.

Midwifery Rocks!

Because of my awesome natural births in 1987 and 1992, under the care of midwives in-hospital both times, I became an advocate for natural birth. This led me to become a labor-support doula in 1996, and then a childbirth educator in 2000. Through the years I have come to value & appreciate midwifery, and I trust all women will realize their value, whether for regular well-woman checkups or for the full care during pregnancy & birth, or both!
