Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Home Birth Safety Act. Provides for the licensure of midwives by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation and for certain limitations on the activities of licensed midwives. Creates the Illinois Midwifery Board. Sets forth provisions concerning application, qualifications, grounds for disciplinary action, and administrative procedures. Amends the Regulatory Sunset Act to set a repeal date for the new Act of January 1, 2028. Amends the Medical Practice Act of 1987, the Nurse Practice Act, and the Illinois Public Aid Code to make related changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
In provisions concerning qualifications for licensed certified professional midwives in the Home Birth Safety Act, provides that after January 1, 2020 (rather than January 1, 2022), all new applicants for licensure as a licensed certified professional midwife through the Accredited Educational Pathway must have graduated from an educational program or pathway accredited by the Midwifery Education and Accreditation Council. Provides that applicants who are Certified Professional Midwives before January 1, 2020 (rather than January 1, 2022) and who have completed non-accredited education pathways will be required to obtain the North American Registry of Midwives Midwifery Bridge Certificate in order to become licensed as a licensed certified professional midwife through the Non-accredited Educational Pathway.
