Volunteers Needed!
Is there a future Citizens for Midwifery volunteer or Board member out there?  The CfM Board is actively seeking eager midwifery advocates who are interested in working with Board Members on any of a number of tasks and projects!

The CfM Board realizes that we need more people to be actively involved with the work of CfM for our organization to continue growing and making an impact for birthing women and midwives.

Do you enjoy surfing the Internet?  Or possibly writing or editing written material?  Perhaps you enjoy calling people up to get information?  We have volunteer opportunities that only take a little time here and there, and some other opportunities that would take a little more of a time commitment.  Here are some immediate needs:

  • One or more people to systematically check the CfM website to catch out-of-date information and dead links, and then follow up to obtain new information and current web site addresses.
  • One or more people to obtain up-to-date and accurate information for the State by State pages on our website.
  • Work with CfM Board Members on the newsletter; this includes writing and/or editing state news reports, thoughtful articles on birth- and midwifery-relevant topics, as well as reviews of books, articles, useful resources, etc.

We will also be looking for some additional people as we develop committees for membership and regional representation.

We need your help to identify and get in touch with people (“consumers” or others) who are willing to volunteer their time.  Contact us by phone or e-mail to volunteer, to ask questions, or to let us know of “hot prospects."

Your 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!
