FAQs:

Who should attend the Summit?

Massachusetts nurse midwives (practicing, non-practicing, students, new graduates, retirees, etc) interested in learning about the state of midwifery in Massachusetts and committed to working toward a Commonwealth where every woman/person has access to midwifery care.

Have you ever wondered what other midwives do to keep their practices vibrant and healthy in the face of increasing internal and external pressures? Whether you are a midwife whose practice is thriving or whose practice or hospital has closed, you have valuable insights to share with midwives from around the state. Together we will work to make midwifery accessible and sustainable in Massachusetts hospitals, for the health of all women, babies, and families in the Commonwealth.
