Midwifery Modernization Act signed by NY Governor

Final piece of good news for midwives in New York State. Governor Patterson on Saturday signed the Midwifery Modernization Act, which will mean a vast improvement in access to midwifery services in NY State. The legislation was pushed through by the amazing organizing and activism that rallied after the closing of St. Vincent’s almost put home birth midwives out of business.

    This is so great. My in New York City who recently delivered her baby with midwives and who did a lot of advocacy for this law will be thrilled by the news.
