news reports, thoughtful articles on birth- and midwifery-relevant topics, as

We will also
be looking for some additional people as we develop committees for membership

involvement is essential to maintaining a strong consumer organization
and the future of midwifery! Talk to friends, family and others about
their birth choices and experience. You can both increase the
demand for midwifery care, and also be a “consumer voice” in political developments, letters to the editor, and many other ways. Join
with other advocates to make your voice heard!
Get involved with your state’s midwifery advocacy organization (if
you have one)! And get involved on the national level with
Citizens for Midwifery! Volunteers are what make this
organization so powerful!
