Calif. Assembly Votes To Expand Certified Midwives’ Role
On Wednesday, the California Assembly unanimously passed a bill (AB 1306) that would allow certified midwives in the state to treat and provide medication for patients without a doctor's supervision. The bill would give certified midwives the same ability to independently see patients that licensed midwives have in the state. The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration.
