Bay State Birth Coalition Supports H.1948/S.1332 "An Act Relative to Out-of-Hospital Birth Access and Safety"
H.1948/S.1332 An Act Relative to Out-of-Hospital Birth Access and Safety" sponsored by Representative Kay Khan and Senator Becca Rausch would create a pathway for licensure of Certified Professional Midwives in Massachusetts. This bill will improve the safety of home birth, promote public health, increase access to maternity care, and save money.
