Spanish-speaking mid-wife serves Monroe County at maternity clinic

"Twenty years ago, pregnant women in Monroe County had few choices when it came to prenatal care and doctors were swamped. Even worse, many patients could hardly afford a doctor's visit."

"[M]ore than 2,000 babies have been born at the center since it opened."

"Despite losing state funding in 2003, the agency continues to serve women through federal grants and local, private donations. They also keep a Spanish speaking mid-wife on staff, to aid the growing Hispanic population in East Tennessee."
