Today there was a press release about midwifery being funded in Alberta. This should happen in April of 2009. Holy moly. I am so pumped. I mean, I would have gone with midwives next time anyways, but now it will be free!!!! That is amazing. It's amazing that ANY WOMAN in Alberta can use midwives now. It won't be restricted to families who could pay the $3500.
THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!
To me, this means less c-sections. It means more meaningful positive birth experiences. It means birthing naturally.
Ah. This is a great change.
I feel just that much closer to being able to have a natural, vaginal childbirth...
Ahem, that is if I get pregnant...
