WMC-TV5 (the local NBC affiliate in Memphis) covered the story on HB 695 which is in committee in the State Senate. Read past posts for more info, but the nutshell version is that it would restrict “the practice of midwifery” to CNMs only, which would effectively make homebirth illegal, since there are few or more likely no CNMs in the state who attend home births. In fact, there are almost no CNMs at all. Here is the link to the video, and here is the write-up about it. Looks good!
P.s., Melissa Stallings, one of the CPMs featured in the story, was the midwife assistant and apprentice when I had my younger son.
