Better Health Outcomes for Women

Women in the United States are dying at rates higher than any other industrialized country in the world. Women need advocates that can help them during one of the most beautiful, stressful and dangerous times of their lives – giving birth. Requiring insurance companies to include the services of Doulas and midwives will improve health outcomes for women, before, during and postpartum.  

Grants to community-based pregnancy support organizations who provide these services will also save the lives of many women in Utah.
