Midwifery Bill passes Senate!

Late April 6th, the Senate voted overwhelming in favor S.15, which guarantees coverage for midwifery services in Vermont. The bill will end the discrimination against expecting mothers who would prefer to have their child in the comfert and supportive environment of their own home but currently have to pay for home birth out of pocket, in addition to their monthly private insurance premium.

The bill now moves to the House of Reps. Stay tuned for more updates as the bill moves forward!
