MMA Victory!


The Midwifery Modernization Act has been passed in the Assembly and (unanimously!) in the Senate! It now awaits Gov. Patterson’s signature.

This bill allows midwives to serve women without the bureaucratic  constraint of a written practice agreement. Women in the state of New York will now have access to more care, and more options, in their birth experiences.

Thank you to all of you who let your representatives know that women’s access to midwifery care is worth protecting.
