Save the Date: National Midwifery Week 2015 will be held October 4 - 10. See more future dates here.
Get ready to revel: National Midwifery Week is October 5-11! We’re taking the opportunity to spread the word about midwives to even more women using the messages in the Our Moment of Truth campaign. We believe everyone has the right to know how much #MidwivesMakeADifference to women and families!
National Midwifery Week was created by ACNM to celebrate and recognize midwives and midwife-led care. It’s time to display your pride in the hallmarks of midwifery that you deliver every day; this week is for you and about you. We need your help to keep spreading the word.
Whether you’re willing to throw yourself into hosting a full-scale midwifery-themed event in your community or only have time to share our stories on Facebook and retweet us on Twitter, every action from every individual builds our celebration and helps to raise awareness. Here’s what you can do to help.
