Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am a doctoral candidate in midwifery and reproductive justice issues in the College of Nursing at the University of New Mexico. The focus of my research has been on following the states' implementation of the ACA on maternal access to care issues, in particular, advocacy and access to midwives and freestanding birth centers. My doctoral dissertation concerns the policy and administrative issues contributing to economic sustainability of out-of-hospital, collaborative models of maternal care.
