CNMA is very excited to be co-sponsoring SB 464, the California Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth Act. The bill is aimed at reducing the effects of implicit bias in pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal care so that all women are treated with dignity and respect by their health care providers.


Here are some recent articles about the bill:

ROMPER: What's In California's Proposed Dignity In Pregnancy & Childbirth Act? The Bill Seeks To Make Perinatal Care More Equitable

The Sacramento Bee: Pregnancy can be life-threatening for black women. SB 464 can change the equation

Lobby Day also means we will also be keeping our presence up in Sacramento continuing to educate legislators on who CNMs are, what we do, and why removal of physician supervision is so important. This is the continuing to lay the groundwork for our future bill where we will remove physician supervision!!


Lobby day is a fun and empowering experience!

You will receive training and be fully supported in learning how to advocate for for CNMs and our clients.

You will have an opportunity to meet face-to-face your elected officials and/or their staff.

You will have time for socializing and connecting with other midwives!
