Boots on the Ground: Mobilizing Midwives to Remove Barriers to Practice

The midwifery scope of practice is defined as the "independent provision of primary care, gynecologic and family planning services, preconception care, care during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, care of the normal newborn during the first 28 days of life," yet the midwifery scope of practice varies from state-to-state depending on each states' licensure and scope of practice statutes. While some states recognize CNMs as independent practitioners, other states are more restrictive and require formal collaborative agreements or even physician sponsorship as a pre-requisite to licensure. Removing these barriers to practice will be necessary if midwives are to be utilized to their potential. The purpose of this session is to equip midwives with resources to assist them in breaking through barriers to practice in their own hospitals, health systems or state governments.
