The following are links to literature which ATM hopes will be helpful for educating legislators and others about midwives. It is usually best to bring a small amount of literature with you when you visit your legislator. One or two brief handouts are usually more effective than handing them too much literature at a time. Legislators are very busy, so giving them something that is a quick read shows respect for their time and is more likely to be read. These handouts can also be used as "talking points" to help you focus on what you want to discuss when you see them. We recommend that you coordinate your efforts to visit legislators with others so legislators will receive a variety of information. Contact your regional director or the legislative committee chair if you have any questions. If you have any materials that you would like to see added, please contact the webmaster.
