Upcoming ACNM Webinars
ACNM Town Hall: Midwives and Telehealth
Wednesday, April 8, 2020 | 8:00 - 9:00 PM EST

The social distancing required by the COVID-19 pandemic could have caused havoc in midwives' ability to provide prenatal and postpartum care. Instead, midwives are quickly adopting telehealth as an efficient and effective method of caring for their clients for these visits. Come and hear about the benefits and challenges that midwives have encountered as they have rapidly adopted telehealth within their services. Register here.
