LOBBY DAY is MAY 7th 2019
Updated: Apr 1, 2019
CNMA wants to encourage all our members, supporters, student midwives, and fellow midwives to participate in this year's lobby day.
Lobby day is a way for CNMA and YOU to help keep midwives on the minds of our legislatures. Even though we don't have a bill this legislative cycle, we need to keep reminding our friends in Sacramento that we are still here, and that we are the safe, cost-effective solution to the growing healthcare shortage in California.
There are several bills that CNMA is supporting, including a bill to require implicit bias training in hospitals and birth centers (SB 464) which CNMA IS OFFICIALLY CO-SPONSORING, as well as one to remove physician supervision for Nurse Practitioners (AB 890), which will effect over half of the nurse-midwives in the state who are dually licensed as NPs. The passage of this bill would also pave the way for midwives to follow suit. We need to show our support for these issues as they will write our path moving forward.
Register for lobby day HERE!
