Committee for the Advancement of Midwifery Practice Seeks Members
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@example.com.

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
