The American College of Nurse-Midwives is on a mission to solve these challenges so that every woman in America can have access to a midwife. Now you can help too—by joining Team Midwife. As a member of Team Midwife, you will help:

  • Spread the word about the excellent care that midwives provide.
  • Increase the number of midwives in practice.
  • Eliminate state laws that block women’s access to midwifery care.
  • Promote the safest childbirth practices for moms and babies.

Have you see the ICM report on the state of midwifery?  The UN is also pushing out a report today based on the ICM report released this week.
