Today is Cookie Day at the Missouri State Capitol. Homebirth and midwifery supporters are (hopefully) out in force, sharing the good news about legal midwives and homebirth (and, of course, lots of yummy cookies!) with our state legislators.
I went last year, 36 weeks pregnant, with a toddler. I was hoping to be able to show off the healthy, home born baby that they saw me pregnant with last time, but alas, my kids and the weather conspired against me. Elizabeth didn't feel well yeserday, had a fever last night, so no go for today.
Instead, I'll borrow an idea from our Iowa neighbors, and send letters in a red envelope to my legislators. No cookies, but at least it will be a noticeable piece of mail!
