Maternal and Child Health Stillbirth Prevention Act of 2022
The Maternal and Child Health Stillbirth Prevention Act of 2022 was introduced in Congress on March 9, 2022 by Congresswoman Alma Adams (D-North Carolina), Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-Iowa), Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) and Senator Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana). Healthy Birth Day, Inc., the nonprofit organization that created the Count the Kicks stillbirth prevention campaign, is proud to be the primary stakeholder of this important stillbirth prevention legislation.
The House and Senate companion legislation would add stillbirth and stillbirth prevention to Title V of the Social Security Act — something that has been lacking since the introduction of Title V back in 1935. Healthy Birth Day, Inc. helped initiate the legislation after discovering the omission of stillbirth from the most important piece of maternal health legislation in our country.
