South Dakota families are fighting to have choices for where they birth and who they choose as a practitioner. We are committed to raising $20,000 to help fund an Independent Midwife Board. In fact, the bill we will propose this year states that the Governor does not have to appoint board members until there is $20,000 in a Midwife Regulatory Fund. Our efforts thus far have raised just over $15,000! Please help us raise the last $5,000 to get one step closer to passing the Midwife Bill in SD. South Dakota Birth Matters supporters have been working tirelessly across the state to make sure 2017 is the year when a bill to license Certified Professional Midwives is passed in our state.

We had a wonderful first week at the Capitol. We have been busy talking to stakeholders and working through their suggestions to strengthen our bill. Next week we have our Legislative Luncheon from 11 to 1 on Tuesday and a informational meeting with legislators on Wednesday after session in Room 412. Thanks so much for all your support, we are getting closer to our goal. There are links on our website for more information about contacting your legislators and the legislative luncheon and advocacy day: SDBirthMatters.org

Today was the first day of session and there is a very positive buzz surrounding our bill. It was wonderful visiting with long time supporters and getting to meet some of the 32 new legislators. There is a lot of good will and we are convinced that after 25 years, this will be the year we pass a bill to license Certified Professional Midwives. Thanks so much for any help you can give us in raising the funds to start an independent board to regulate Certified Professional Midwives.
