Emailed to Senator Maria Cantwell:
I have a meeting scheduled Friday the 28th at 9AM with your South King County outreach director, Nate. As a member of MomsRising.org
and a professional insurance biller, I am meeting with your staff to
say that the health care system as it is is broken and must change. We
need a not-for-profit public competitor to put the emphasis back on
excellent, evidence based health care, instead of on the profits of
insurance companies. And as a member of the MAMA Campaign,
I am meeting with your staff to say that giving all healthy pregnant
women access to Certified Professional Midwives outside of the hospital
and Certified Nurse Midwives in the hospital with obstetricians
handling complications will save the US money and improve outcomes for
women and children. Please watch this important video about infant
mortality, found here: http://www.reducinginfantmortality.com/.
Thank you for the work you have always done for women’s health and
rights. This is one more issue where we need you to be our champion.
