Solving the shortage of women’s health care providers in the US is a daunting task that will involve coordinating stakeholders from every level of the medical community.

JOSEPH BOOTH, JD, Mdiv., FAAML

IN-HOUSE COUNSEL

Today’s Physicians and Midwives spend the majority of their early careers learning how to administer care. So much so that learning the legal and business aspects of running a practice simply isn’t feasible. The legalities surrounding maternity care require careful navigation by a knowledgeable advocate.

“There are few leaders in the American maternal health system that I respect and admire more than Ginger and Lesley. They have improved the wellbeing of countless moms and babies, not only through their own clinical practices, but through building professional bridges and laying the foundation for how midwives and physicians, birth centers and hospitals, can and should work together.”

For some reason, it feels more palpable to share sound bites of our work this week - from assisting with midwife issues around professional malpractice coverage surprises to those seeking help with leading large practices and struggling to find work/life balance.I have survived many career challenges and believe this quote from one of my favorite resources, the Harvard Business Review, "... it’s virtually impossible to advance in modern organizations without assistance from others." In my experience, advancing midwifery in any setting requires constant work.Offering the article to those who might also be seeking help and support, particularly in this time of intense stress on health care systems.#GrowMidwives #HereToHelp #scalingupandsustainingmidwiferyhbr.org/2018/05/how-to-get-the-help-you-need ...
