Sample E-mail Encouraging Clients to Join Team Midwife

National Midwifery Week is October 3–9, and joining Team Midwife is the perfect way for your clients to celebrate you! Below, we’ve created a sample e-mail that you can send to your clients asking them to join Team Midwife, which helps get the word out about the excellent care that midwives provide. Please pass it on, and let your clients know about National Midwifery Week.

Dear [Client Name],

All of us at [practice name] have enjoyed getting to know you and caring for you during your prenatal appointments, labor, and/or postnatal checkups. We’re so glad you chose us as your health care providers, and we hope your experience with us has been a positive one!

We wanted to let you know that National Midwifery Week is coming up October 3–9, and a great way to celebrate is by joining Team Midwife, a campaign by the American College of Nurse-Midwives to increase public awareness about the excellent care that midwives provide. Many women have misconceptions about midwives or are unaware that midwives are available. Team Midwife aims to remedy this by communicating the value of midwifery care to the public, hospital administrators, and legislators.

With your membership, you’ll receive an exclusive monthly online newsletter featuring women’s health news and stories about amazing midwives, as well as a Proud Member badge for your Web site or blog. You can also follow Team Midwife on Facebook and Twitter to connect with other midwifery fans and share stories and news about midwives and women’s health. And you can share your birth story or other midwife experiences and read other women’s stories on Team Midwife’s new “Share” page.

Thanks so much, and have a happy National Midwifery Week!
