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.

I can't remember when it happened...

But after years of being a nurse and childbirth educator I knew without a doubt that midwives provided the best care for childbearing women.

Midwives and home birth are not only safe but superior for healthy women giving birth in the US today. Judith Lothian, RN, PhD, LCCE
