National Midwifery Week

October 4-10th

Thank you to all the midwives and student midwives for your hard work and commitment to supporting birthing persons! We hope that you take time during this week to celebrate yourself and your colleagues.

During National Midwifery Week, CNMA would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the huge contribution of our Licensed Midwife colleagues in their important role in maternal health in California. We appreciate the incredible dedication and steadfast commitment Licensed Midwives give every day to birthing individuals and their families!
