AB 1308 passes in the CA Senate and Assembly with unanimous support  

Good News:  AB 1308 has passed! This California legislation will recognize Licensed Midwives (LMs) as birth center professionals, permit LMs to carry and administer life-saving medications, and free LMs from physician supervision requirements under current law.  

Thank you for supporting this legislation to increase access to the high quality care and excellent outcomes of midwife-led care, in and out of birth centers, by recognizing LMs as providers for licensed alternative birth centers.  

Learn more about the bill on the California Families for Access to Midwives website.

Please share this alert with all your clients, friends, colleagues, family members and ask them to support this bill by calling their state senator and representative to urge her or him to increase access to the high quality care and excellent outcomes of midwife-led care, in and out of birth centers, by recognizing LMs as providers for licensed alternative birth centers.
