New law in Indiana - Home birth related

As of July 1 new laws were enacted that name certified nurse midwives and certified direct entry midwives as health care providers. The text of the law also outlines the criteria for certification and licensing (from what I understand, I'm not terribly proficient in legalese.). This makes it a more favorable environment for assisted/attended home births. :) this gives me a happy.
Here's a link to the text of the law.

Anything that will allow women to birth the way they choose is a victory!

This is wonderful! 

I live in Lubbock Texas and the only places you can have a baby are one of two hospitals, the teaching one with a resident doctor or "The other one".  There are no certified midwives for home births, no birthing centers, no CNM practicing in hospitals.  If you choose to have the baby at home, you are on your own.  The closest town with any of these things is 3 hours away.  When I first moved here 5 years ago and got pregnant and found all this out I was sick to my stomach, but fortunately I have a wonderful OB.
