YOUR VOICE WILL DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OF GROUNDBREAKING POSTPARTUM LEGISLATION
Hearing on Post-Partum Legislation -- January 27th, 10am at the State House.
Calling all mothers, fathers, professionals, and those who care about the health of mothers and families. Your voice and your personal story will make the difference in whether this very important legislation gets passed.
The Post-Partum Depression Legislation that Rep. Ellen Story (Amherst) has been spearheading with other representatives, will be heard before the Committee on Financial Services on Wednesday, January 27 at 10 AM in Gardner Auditorium at the State House.
House Bill 3897: An Act Relative to Post-Partum Depression is a significant development in educating providers and families on PPD issues. The Pregnancy and Postpartum Support Coalition of Western Massachusetts and MotherWoman are in support of this legislation which provides screening, referrals, and public and professional education on post-partum depression.
There will be a press event prior to the hearing, also at the State House. We hope you can attend both events, along with your friends and colleagues, to demonstrate support.
