MFSB is reorganizing. Find out how YOU can fit in the process.
Thank you for your patience! We at MFSB have been working hard after a disappointing year to devise a new plan of action for next year's General Assembly. We want to thank you so very much for sticking with the effort and continuing to support this great cause-licensing CPMs. It's hard work, but in the end Maryland families WILL have the access to midwifery care that we need and cherish.
From now on MFSB is focused on three things.
- Legislation in Annapolis to License CPMs.
- Building a coalition of support from local and national non- and for-profit organizations.
- Planning four (4) public, family friendly events across the state to raise money, increase awareness to our cause, and provide opportunities for getting involved.

Four million children are born in the United States each year. Pregnancy, birth, and the post-natal period are critical times in the life of a child, a new mother, and their family in terms of physical, mental, and emotional health. Childbirth outcomes thus have tremendous public health consequences. Join us in trying to understand what's gone wrong and how we can fix it.
