Hi friends! The bill to license Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) in our state could pass this session, but we're out of money to pay our lobbyist. So the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance (MMA) is running a crowd funding campaign.
The MMA is a professional trade organization promoting the modern midwifery model which uses evidence-based and family centered practices to provide safe and fulfilling prenatal, birth and postpartum care to families across Massachusetts. A donation to MMA supports our efforts to pass legislation that would create licensing for CPMs in Massachusetts, and can also be earmarked for the MMA Midwifery Course scholarship fund for women of color and for financial need to help meet the growing demand for midwives who are able to serve diverse communities.
