The Senate Committee on Licensing and Occupations heard Senate Bill 67 on March 7th, the bill allowing for freestanding birthing centers in Kentucky. Read more about birthing centers at kentuckylantern.com and how they will help mitigate Kentucky’s maternal health crisis.
Great news! SB67 passed out of committee, for the second time, with a 7-3 vote. It will head to the Senate Floor next. Tell your legislators improving maternal health outcomes in Kentucky MUST be a top priority.
The United States is the only developed nation with alarming rates of maternal and infant mortality. Black infants are two times more likely to die before their first birthday than non-Hispanic white infants.
