State Sen. Cristina Castro, D-Elgin, said the bill creating a licensing process for midwives is a “historic measure,” one that has been in the works since 1986. 

Midwifery moved a step closer to becoming a licensed profession in Illinois on Wednesday thanks to a measure advanced by state senators during the second day of the fall veto session.

State Sen. Cristina Castro, D-Elgin, said the bill creating a licensing process for midwives is a “historic measure,” one that has been in the works since 1986.

“When we talk about maternal health for women, especially Black and Brown women, now we give folks options and choices to help advocate for them and draw down the horrible maternal morbidity we’re seeing across the nation,” Castro said. “Illinois is at the forefront of that.”
