To increase access to licensed midwifery care, particularly for families receiving Medi-Cal
We are medical professionals who have consulted with licensed midwives when they sought our expert advice. We observed these licensed midwives providing excellent care to their clients. In fact, we feel that the requirement for licensed midwives to have physician supervision provides a barrier to care, particularly to individuals receiving Medi-Cal. We support legislation that would remove this wording thereby giving licensed midwives the ability to provide their services to families of all economic standing.
