Thank You Michigan Midwives and Consumers!
Michigan CPM Legislation Signed into Law
Michigan CPM legislation was signed into law today, January 4th. The bill was passed thanks to efforts by the Coalition to License Certified Professional Midwives in Michigan and the consumer organization Friends of Michigan Midwives (FOMM), who contributed countless volunteer hours for over eight years to secure licensure. The midwives in Michigan look forward to spreading the midwifery model to more families and to increasing collaboration through a more cohesive relationship with other health care providers.
MANA was honored to provide a letter of support to the legislation, and sends a HUGE congrats and thank you to everyone who participated in the grassroots efforts, from phone calls to legislative visits to countless strategy sessions. Amazing work, Michigan!
Deborah Fisch, member of the Coalition and FOMM, created an engaging series of graphics that helped generate awareness and action. We're thrilled to see the bill become a law!
