It has too long since my last post. On Tuesday this week I will participate on a panel at the Lown Institute 2018 conference in Washington, D.C. http://conference.lowninstitute.org/sessions/breakout-session-getting-maternity-care-right-women-newborns/ I look forward to interacting with the others on the panel who are doing excellent work in improving maternity and newborn care. All mothers and newborns, including those covered by Medicaid, deserve to have access to great maternity care that supports physiologic birth. Care for nearly 50% of mothers and babies each year is covered by Medicaid so this is a very important topic. Stay tuned for a follow up post.
