Midwives in Harmony for Women's Health

Midwives are guiding exciting and unprecedented initiatives with dramatic implications for our profession. Our ability to improve maternal outcomes and access to care is expanding and changing in the United States. The global demand for midwives and our expertise in the physiology of childbirth is higher than ever. Teamwork and collaboration between midwives and other health care professionals is growing and prospering, widening our field of influence.

With this opportunity comes responsibility—to our clients and to our profession. At the ACNM 58th Annual Meeting & Exposition, you’ll find the inspiration and resources to take on the changes headed our way.

Tracks for the ACNM 58th Annual Meeting & Exposition are:
  • Clinical Issues - Learn to apply the latest research to everyday care, and the best practices in primary care, patient education, pharmacology, and more.
  • Education - Are you a teacher preceptor, or mentor? Choose the education track to learn how you can enhance your students' experience.
  • Global Midwifery - Get started in international work or help prepare qualified midwives to work abroad. You'll learn about new maternal and newborn health projects, how to give care in a limited resource setting, and the latest international health research.
  • The Business of Midwifery - Many midwives are also small business owners. Prefect your understanding of professional liability, how to get paid, quality standards, and marketing.
  • The Public Perception of Midwifery - We want the whole country to know about and value midwives, and this starts with midwives understanding and getting involved with legislation and promoting our profession.
  • Students - Students are the future of midwifery. Take advantage of opportunities to study for the national certification exam, review skills, and learn how to find the right job.
  • Research - Stay on the cutting edge of the latest research topics related to clinical and international practice and support your colleagues who work in research and academia.
