Can anyone tell me how NH stands on these issues?
Thank you.

Thank you.
I know that there was a midwifery place about 5 miles outside of Concord.

Abortion is legal in NH.
The rest I don't know.

A quick Google search turns up some New Hampshire resources:

NH Midwives Assn: http://www.nhmidwives.org/index.html
NH MIdwifery Statutes: http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/NHTOC/NHTOC-XXX-326-D.htm

I want to thank you for your helpful responses.
We are looking at NH as a place to live and these issues are important to me. I could never consider a place "free", where a woman is not free to choose if, when, where and how she gives birth.

Just remember, Ella -- nobody is saying NH is already free
NH was chosen as the place to MAKE a Free State.
It is already nicely free on many issues compared to many states, and there are plenty of reasons why NH is the best place to fight for Freedom (http://freestateblogs.net/files/images/newhampshireblue.gif).
But don't think for one instant that there is ANY truly "Free" state in the US, at least not yet.
This is a project that will require tireless work by many hundreds, perhaps thousands of people.

I for one thank god that I am fortunate enough to be here, fighting that fight with so many other people who are also dedicated.

NH is much freer than where I came from, or I probably wouldn't have moved.  Hope you make the move, Ella, and if you can, sign the First 1000 Pledge!
