A young audience member holds a sign supporting midwives at the Legislative Open Forum at Athens State University Monday night. Katrina Dial of Tanner, a mother of three who is expecting a fourth child, asked the delegation to consider supporting a bill that would allow certified midwives to deliver babies at a home.
