The Preventing Maternal Deaths Act (H.R. 1318) Passed the House!
After the tireless efforts of so many, the Preventing Maternal Deaths Act (H.R. 1318) finally passed the House of Representatives on December 11. The Foundation is grateful to all the midwives, maternal health advocates, and policymakers that helped make this possible. But the work isn’t over yet, it still needs to pass Senate. Please urge your Senator to support this bill. Act now to protect our mothers.
