Welcome to ACNM Connect. Join a vibrant online community of midwives — a place to share information, learn, collaborate, and discuss issues relating to midwifery.
ACNM Connect is an assembly of online communities designed for the purpose of digitally connecting ACNM members who share a passion for midwifery and for caring for women and individuals throughout their lifespan. It is a hub where member conversations regarding the midwifery model of care take place; best practices and news are shared; questions are asked and answered; and insights and guidance are provided. Participating in this highly-interactive peer-to-peer forum is one of the most valued benefits of ACNM membership.
To ensure the best possible experience for all members, ACNM maintains a Code of Conduct that governs behavior by forum participants and reflects the fundamental values of ACNM. The College strives to maintain professional environments where people interact with dignity, decency, and respect – characterized by mutual trust and the absence of intimidation, oppression, and exploitation. By joining and using the ACNM Connect community, you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines contained in the Code of Conduct. You also agree to limit discussion to issues germane to midwifery.
In order to preserve an environment that encourages respectful and meaningful dialogue, ACNM reserves the right to remove content and suspend or terminate membership in this community for anyone who violates these rules. If you note something problematic in one of the communities, please advise ACNM at [email protected] or via the Contact Us link on this site.
As a benefit of membership, the American College of Nurse-Midwives hosts a members-only digital platform, ACNM Connect, which includes more than 300 online communities, including ACNM's Bulletin Board Community that every member has access to viewing. The ACNM Bulletin Board is a space for ACNM members to share information with the entire ACNM membership. It aligns with ACNM's commitment to provide equitable access to spaces in which members can post on topics relevant to them.
Every member is also added to the state-based community of their state affiliates. Additionally, members may add themselves by simply clicking a "Join" button to any one of dozens of other communities. Communities include:
