2024 Lobby Day is Cancelled

2/2/24 UPDATE – Our 2024 MFSB Lobby Day has been cancelled and instead we will be holding a Rally to promote maternity care and evidence-based, culturally informed birth options in Maryland and raise support for MFSB’s work and future legislation. Date for the Rally has not yet been announced but will be later in the legislative session, likely in late March. Please check back again soon for more information on the Rally, and we hope you can join us in Annapolis!

Rally for MFSB in March!

MFSB will not be having a Lobby Day in 2024 as originally planned. We will instead be holding a Rally, most likely in late March.

We need everyone to show up! This is your chance to let your voice be heard. Maternity care is a critical issue and we need to let our legislators know that we care about access to evidence-based, culturally sensitive maternity care in Maryland.

Stay tuned for more information on the MFSB Rally, and thank you again for your support!

CANCELLED – Lobby Day 2024

2/2/24 UPDATE – This event has been cancelled – please attend our upcoming Rally in Annapolis instead (date TBD in March).

Our 2024 Lobby Day for Maternity Care Access is Wednesday, February 7, 2024 from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM in Annapolis!

Join Maryland Families for Safe Birth in Annapolis on Wednesday, 2/7/24 to show your representatives that you care about maternal health care for Maryland families. We will be supporting a bill which will improve access to VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) for families seeking that option. This is the same bill that passed through the house almost unanimously last session but stalled in the Senate. We need as many people as possible to show up in Annapolis to let our representatives know how important this issue is!

We will do all of the legwork to schedule your meetings, provide talking points, etc. All of the meetings will include at least two members from our group. All you have to do is show up (and let us know you are coming ???? )

Please fill out this form so we know your availability and can get you the relevant information. https://forms.gle/gzknqB24dyjCV6xG7

You can find information about Lobby Day 2024 on our Facebook page also.

We look forward to seeing you there!
