Practitioners May Be Required to Assist with Planning For Postpartum Care



Assembly Bill 2655, introduced on February 14, 2022, and later reported and referred to the Assembly Health Committee on March 16, 2023, would require health care professionals providing prenatal care to ensure that each pregnant woman has the opportunity to develop a comprehensive personalized postpartum care plan that is consistent with her anticipated postpartum needs.

The health care professional will be required to offer to help develop a plan if the woman does not have a plan.
