We
can reduce costs and improve infant and maternal mortality by providing
universal access to prenatal care with doctors, nurse midwives, and
Certified Professional Midwives.  Please give poor, at-risk women
access to primary midwifery care that wealthy women are able to buy: 
INCLUDE COVERAGE OF CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL MIDWIVES IN ANY GOV’T FUNDED
HEALTH PLAN INCLUDING MEDICAID. 

Take Washington State’s best
practices to the other Washington: the government should pay no more
for cesarean birth than for complicated vaginal birth, and provide
Medicaid clients access to the midwifery model of care.
