Resource Packet for Midwifery Advocacy





The
ACNM Government Relations department has created a resource packet to help
members educate legislators, insurance companies, and other stakeholders about
midwifery. The documents contained within the packet address the differences
between midwifery credentials, the educational preparation of CNMs/CMs, and
scope of practice. Members should select the documents that best meet their
individual needs to offer stakeholders an adequate introduction to who midwives
are and what midwives do.





The
specific documents included in the packet include:





*
Definition
of Midwifery and Scope of Practice of Certified Nurse-Midwives and Certified
Midwives
*
Joint
Statement of Practice Relations between Obstetrician-Gynecologists and
Certified Nurse-Midwives and Certified Midwives
