Safe, evidence-based birth options in EVERY community in California.

All California families deserve access to a midwife in the birth setting of their choice: hospital, birth center, or home. 

Too many families believe they cannot choose a licensed midwife because they can’t find a MediCal provider. Others do not have access to a midwife who reflects their cultural background. Some simply aren’t aware that midwifery care is an option for their family.

California Association of Midwives Foundation (CAM) is working to make sure families have access to a licensed midwife for their care in pregnancy and birth.

Helping more families have access to midwifery care through:




Access To Culturally Sensitive Care

Education for Families

Expanded Access To Midwifery
