Posted on February 11, 2014 at 9:40 AM
After much thoughtful deliberation, hours of testimony, and a strong showing by the consumers and the providers of licensed midwifery care at home, the Midwifery Scope of Practice was expanded in 2013.  Just when we thought home birth in Arizona was going to follow evidence-based care...a new bill was introduced this legislative session to undermine a family's right to choose home birth. Read more about it HERE 

Here is the most recent update from our main advocate for an expanded scope of practice, Allyson Fernstrom:

The bill has been posted on the agenda for Wednesday the 12th at 2pm. Here is what needs to happen until then. 

1st: We MUST keep sending emails and making phone calls to Senator Barto. She can still decide to "hold the bill", which means that she will decide not to hear it on Wednesday. Here are the things to include in your email to Senator Barto:
--Let her know that you do NOT support SB1157 (put this in the subject line).
--Ask her to HOLD THE BILL
--Ask her to protect our personal liberties by holding SB1157!
--Let her know that you believe in the rules revision process we went through as mandated by HB2247. We stand by the rules created by Director Humble. 
--Let her know that by holding this bill, she is respecting the lengthy rules revision process that included a great deal of input from ALL stakeholders! 

2nd: We MUST send emails to ALL members of the Senate Health and Human Service Committee. The file below contains all of the contact info for the committee members. The information should be very similar to the email you will send Senator Barto with minor changes. Instead of asking the committee members to "hold the bill" ask them to vote NO!!! Here is what you can write in the emails to ALL Senate Health and Human Service Committee members:
--Let them know you do Not support SB1157 (put this in the subject line).
--Ask them to VOTE NO on SB1157
--Ask them to protect our personal liberties by VOTING NO on SB1157
--Let them know that you believe in the rules revision process we went through as mandated by HB2247. We stand by the rules created by Director Humble. 
--Let them know that by VOTING NO, they are respecting the lengthy rules revision process that included a great deal of input from ALL stake holders. 

3rd: YOU MUST MUST MUST MUST clear your schedule and attend the hearing on Wednesday the 12th at 2pm. I understand that this is a difficult time because kids are getting out of school. Please do EVERYTHING in your power to arrange for someone else to pick up your children. It is not an ideal setting for children to attend the hearing, however, if you can not come unless you have your children, bring them along!! I can NOT stress how important it is for us to show up in huge numbers!! CLEAR YOUR SCHEDULE if you care about your birthing rights!!!

If you can join us at the State Capitol, please come out in a show of support for informed choice and dignity in birth.

If not, HERE is a list of contact information, plus a quick look of phone numbers to make phone calls in opposition of SB1157:
