legislative advocacy

MAF works in Tallahassee at the state capitol to advocate for licensed midwifery and quality maternity care for Florida families.

We are currently working on initiatives to implement a program, similar to Smooth Transitions, to improve transfers to the hospital from home and birth center care.  Smooth Transitions is an initiative of the Foundation of Health Care Quality in Washington State and we will be building on their model for Florida.

Keep community birth in your legislators minds. Whenever a new baby is born in their district send them a birth announcement. 


Keep MAF's presence in Tallahassee advocating for midwives. Please donate to our Lobby Fund.
