National Midwifery Week!

Join us in celebrating National Midwifery Week, and be sure to check out ACNM's page:

This is a great opportunity to support midwifery, thank a midwife, tell others about the importance of giving women birthing options, and educating the public. It's also a reminder that some communities don't have access to midwifery care, and the need to promote midwifery training and outreach.

Professional standards, including codes of ethics, represent the profession to the public and to other professionals. When questioned about midwifery and professionalism, be sure to direct those questioning to professional organizations (ACNM, MANA, ICM, etc.) and the published professional standards.
