Safer Midwifery for Michigan aims to advocate for change on many fronts. One of our goals is to support legislation that would improve safety while preserving options for families The climate of proposed legislation in recent years has been polarized, even among midwives themselves. The fine print matters a great deal, and too often we are seeing bills that sacrifice measures that would improve safety for the sake of "advancing" midwifery. This is unacceptable.
There are currently no bills regarding midwifery that sufficiently address issues of safety. Should one become available, we will post a full review and ways you can support such an effort on our webpage.
