Vision and Purpose



NACPM envisions a primary maternity care system in our country where all women access care through a midwife, where birth place is the choice of the family, and where all women and babies have the same chance to be healthy.


NACPM’s purpose is to be a powerful, collective voice for Certified Professional Midwives. We strengthen and support excellence in the profession and influence maternal health policy to ensure that all mothers and babies have a healthy start.
