Join Us at the Capitol on January 19th

Your help is needed to make our 2016 Legislative Advocacy Day the best ever.  South Dakota Birth Matters will have a display set up in the Capitol Rotunda all day and serve lunch to the legislators there from 11 am to 1 pm.  There will be time for you to visit with legislators, attend committee hearings and watch both the House and Senate while in floor session. (We will post more details as we get closer.)You can sign up to:

  • bring food,
  • help with set up,
  • help with clean up,
  • serve as our photographer
  • serve the meal, or
  • provide childcare 

at our online volunteer site. You can also let us know if you need childcare, which will be available from 9 am to 3:30 pm in the Visitors Center (right next to the Capitol) for a free will offering.  Please post on our Facebook Event if you are interested in ride shares from your area or staying with a host family in Pierre.

If you can’t come, but still want to help, we need your financial support to pay for things like facility rental, bottled water, juice, and paper products.  Any amount is greatly appreciated!  You can donate to our Paypal Account on the home page of our website  or send a check to :

This picture is a throwback from our 2008 Advocacy Day.  We are still here fighting to give South Dakota families access to the birth options that are working well in other states.  This year our focus is on licensing Certified Professional Midwives – the experts in out of hospital birth.  Certified Professional Midwives have been recognized in 30 states. None of these states has ever rescinded their laws, because these midwives are providing a valuable service and saving families and states money.Join us in bringing Certified Professional Midwives to South Dakota!
