  • ACNM Department of Communications Seeks Volunteer Media Experts

    Deadline: Rolling
    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

  • Committee for the Advancement of Midwifery Practice Seeks Members

    Deadline: Rolling
    The Committee for the Advancement of Midwifery Practice (CAMP) is looking for more practicing midwives to join as members. The committee's main goal is to strengthen the midwifery profession in the United States. Its work takes many forms, from helping to create boards of midwifery to helping draft—and pass!—legislation on the state level that supports certified midwives (CMs). Serving as one of CAMP's members is a great way to get plugged in to the ACNM community, and it's not an overwhelming time commitment. Please contact Shawna King if you are interested.
