I have terminated my apprenticeship program effective May 1, 2006.

Do to the new political climate in Mexico, Mexican health care officials are trying very hard to eliminate Midwifes and Midwifery care in Mexico. They are doing this 2 ways. First, by offering "free" health care for every pregnant women in Mexico. Of course, getting this "free" care has a number of strings attached to it, but because they do offer "free" care, they want ALL Mexican women to deliver in a hospital, so they have set about eliminating Midwifes in Mexico. The other thing that Mexican health care officials have done, is to refuse to issue any birth certificates to Midwifes sence the start of 2007. This effectively puts Mexican Midwifes out of business, sence they cannot provide a birth certificate to any couples desiring a home birth.
