Hombirth in Time Magazine

It seems like homebirth is being covered more and more by the mainstream media.  This summer it was CNN, now it’s TIME.  There were two articles–both are pretty good, with a few exceptions.  “Lay” midwives is a much outdated term–can we get over this?  Also, homebirth midwifery is NOT illegal in ALL of the 25 or so states w/o licensure programs.  That would include Maine.  Fact-checking anyone?
