The Big Push for Midwives Campaign

The Alabama Birth Coalition unites groups and individuals that are committed to improving access to natural childbirth options for women, families and communities in Alabama. Our goal is to provide a statewide grassroots network connecting Members with services that support the goal of natural childbirth and respect parents' rights to make the appropriate health care decisions for their families.

 

The Big Push for Midwives Campaign is a nationally coordinated campaign to advocate for regulation and licensure of Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and to push back against the attempts of the American Medical Association Scope of Practice Partnership to deny American families access to legal midwifery care. Through its work with state-level advocates, the Big Push is helping to forge a new model of U.S. maternity care built on expanding access to out-of-hospital maternity care and CPMs, who provide affordable, quality, community-based care that is proven to reduce costly and preventable interventions as well as the rate of low-birth weight and premature births.
