Our Vision for California Midwifery

All California families know about and have access to the high quality, personalized maternity care provided by midwives in the setting of their choice, including home, birth center and hospital.

All California midwives are free to practice autonomously and have access to the resources and collaboration essential to providing outstanding care to California families.


Midwifery is thriving in California, our birth outcomes are exceptional, and hospital care improves through the modeling provided by midwifery practice.
