Medical Professionals Who Birthed Out-of-Hospital Support Licensed Midwives!

To increase access to licensed midwifery care for individuals receiving Medi-Cal

Letter to
Members of the Senate & Assembly
California State House
California State Senate
We are medical professionals who chose to have our babies out-of-hospital with licensed midwives. We received excellent care from our licensed midwives without physician supervision. 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.
