We Sued the Sheriff: Lessons from Rulemaking in Arizona
In 2012, the midwives and consumers of Arizona pushed for a bill to open the midwifery rules of practice. The rules were opened and, after countless meetings and open forums, VBACs were added to the scope of practice for licensed midwives. What looked like a win was quickly reversed when legislators sought to undo this increase and the Department of Health Services began changing the way it read existing rules.
