State Laws and Regulations Affecting Midwifery Practice (Members Only)
State guidance documents are stored in the ACNM Library. Meant to be advisory in nature, documents address topics including scope of practice and regulatory oversight. The Government Relations department strives to
ensure that the statutory and regulatory information contained in these
documents is current. A thorough review of each state’s document occurred in
2012 and state information is updated as new laws or rules are implemented.
