MMHLA – along with almost 250 co-signers – supported a letter to Congressional leadership encouraging passing the Build Back Better Act which includes the following important provision for maternal health:

  • Extending pregnancy-related Medicaid coverage for a full year postpartum, and making this provision mandatory and permanent.
  • Passing the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act, which includes robust investments in programs that take steps towards birth equity by centering the voices, needs, and preferences of Black and Indigenous individuals, who disproportionately experience inequities in maternal health.
