Breaking down the 2021 Momnibus bill

Early this week, Representatives Lauren Underwood, Alma Adams, Cory Booker, and members of the Black Maternal Health Caucus announced the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021. The piece of legislation builds on existing maternal health legislation and seeks to mitigate racial and ethic disparities in maternal health outcomes.

Health Affairs editors Leslie Erdelack and Jessica Bylander break down what’s new and important in the Momnibus 2.0 bill, noting the inclusion of initiatives to mitigate climate change-related risks for moms and babies and grow the perinatal workforce.
 
Health Affairs is planning a cluster of papers on perinatal mental health, to be published in October of 2021. Don’t miss the issue and subscribe to the journal.
