Dear Representative Holbrook,
I am asking you to vote yes on SB3712, (Homebirth Safety Act) that would allow Certified Professional Midwives to be licensed and recognized. My daughter-in-law is a Belleville resident and is plannng a homebirth and it would be so much more reassuring to know that the midwife she uses to assist her is trained and legal in our state and county. It is not illegal for her to have her baby at home, but it is illegal for a trained Certified Professional Midwife to provide her prenatal care and help her birth her child and provide her with followup postpartum care. Please help Illinois join 27 other states in assuring that women have a safe choice in Homebirth.
I understand you are the downstate Caucas leader, thats intention is to give us a voice in Springfield, please bring this message to the legislature for the future protection and safety of our young mothers and babies.
Thank you for your time and help in this matter.
Sincerely,
Jan Rieckenberg
wife, mother, & soon to be grandmother
