National Midwifery Week
"Midwives for Every Community "

October 3 - 9, 2021
National Midwifery Week (#NMW2021) was created by ACNM to celebrate and recognize midwives and midwife-led care. It's time to display your pride in the hallmarks of midwifery that you deliver every day; this week is for you and about you.




This year's theme is "Midwives for Every Community." Midwives play a key part in every community. Midwives believe every person has a right to equitable, ethical, accessible, quality health care. Individuals and communities are empowered by the midwifery model of care, which fosters compassionate collaborations and personalizes care based on each person's life experiences and expertise.

Whether you're willing to throw yourself into hosting a full-scale midwifery-themed event in your community or only have time to share our stories on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter, every action from every individual builds our celebration and helps to raise awareness about the important role midwives play for women and families. Don't forget to use the hashtags #NMW2021 and #MidwivesforEveryCommunity whenever you post or re-post on social media for your chance to be featured on ACNM's social media channels.

Let us know how you'll be participating! If you need help or have any questions, please contact [email protected].
