Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA-02) is continuing her efforts to improve maternal care for rural women as they grow their families.

Last week, she visited the MercyOne New Hampton Medical Center and the Waverly Health Center to discuss improving rural maternal health care. Additionally, she sat down with a group of Iowa women who experienced high-risk pregnancies and endured the tragedy of stillbirth to hear their stories first-hand.

“When I came to Congress, I set out to ensure those who live in rural areas have the same access to healthcare that those in urban areas do, especially expecting moms. Last week, I spent time meeting with the healthcare providers who are on the frontlines of ensuring every woman has access to quality care, as well as women who are lending their voices to the fight for improved services and resources on the journey to motherhood. I’m proud of my work to expand maternal healthcare and make motherhood easier, including introducing legislation to bring more midwives to Iowa, raise awareness about stillbirth prevention, and ensure new moms don’t receive surprise hospital bills. We will work together for healthy moms, healthy babies, and strong families in Iowa.” – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
