As part of ACNM's Healthy Birth Initiative, www.BirthTOOLS.org (Tools toOptimize theOutcomes ofLaborSafely) is a web-based tool kit created specifically for providers who need evidence-based research and tools to promote normal physiologic birth in their settings.

ACNM is seeking interested members to serve on the Standing Bylaws Committee, including up to six new members and a Chair. Ideally, the Bylaws Committee will include members with diversity in geographic representation, employment/experience in midwifery, and in length of membership within ACNM.
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. Serving as a volunteer media expert can also be an excellent way to draw attention to your region or local practice. Interested members should send their areas of interest/expertise along with a CV to ACNM Communications Director Clare Lynam at [email protected].
