Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement in response to the Iowa Senate passing SF 2251 with bipartisan support:  

“Building a culture of life in Iowa means getting families off to the right start, but two months of postpartum care isn’t enough. Extending postpartum care to 12 months for women with the greatest need helps them recover from childbirth, access family planning services, manage chronic health issues, and address mental health. For our state to be strong, our families must be strong.”
