Please cosponsor HD.2959/ SD.1570 Out-of-Hospital Birth Access and Safety Act

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor HD.2959/ SD.1570 the Out-of-Hospital Birth Access and Safety Act sponsored by Representative Kay Khan and Senator Becca Rausch.

It is important to me that every pregnant person in Massachusetts have access to safe and respectful maternity care providers in the birth setting of their choice. States that integrate midwives into their health care systems have lower rates of neonatal death, lower rates of preterm birth, lower rates of C-section, and higher rates of breastfeeding.

The time is now to...

  • Address our maternal health crisis through greater use of midwives
  • Create equitable access to birth choices
  • Eliminate maternity care deserts with community-based midwives
  • Join the 33 other states that recognize Certified Professional Midwives
