Midwife Advocacy Day October 5

Massachusetts is facing a maternal health crisis. Midwives can help eliminate racial disparities in maternal health outcomes by improving patient autonomy and satisfaction.Midwives in Massachusetts do not have a path to licensure. Please join our partners in the Bay State Birth Coalition on Thursday, October 5 at 12:30 PM at the State House for Midwife Advocacy Day. LWVMA supports the midwife licensure bill S1457/H2209, An Act promoting access to midwifery care and out-of-hospital birth options, which would create a pathway to licensure for Certified Professional Midwives and integrate these midwives into our existing maternal health care infrastructure.Register here.
