Congratulations to Kentucky & Hawaii!
This year, we are pleased to announce that two states passed legislation to regulate CPMs! Kentucky became the 33rd state, and Hawaii is the 34th state to regulate midwives.
These are wins not only for the midwives ability to practice, but more importantly for families’ access to midwifery care. Several states have been working on CPM legislation, and we hope to be able to announce many more in 2020.
If you are curious when your state passed legislation, go to The Big Push for Midwives.
Wishing you all a Healthy and Happy Holiday Season!
