- ACNM Department of Communications Seeks Volunteer Media Experts
The ACNM Department of Communications is seeking volunteers to help raise visibility of the midwifery profession by serving as media experts. We currently field several calls per week from reporters requesting interviews on topics ranging from general women’s health and maternity care to specific areas of expertise, such as nitrous oxide for laboring women, menopause management, primary care, and home birth. Reporters often call on deadline and need to connect with a midwife for an interview in as little as 24 hours.

Interested members should send their areas of interest/expertise along with a CV to ACNM Communications Director Clare Lynam at [email protected].
