Midwives and Mothers in Action (MAMA) Campaign

In May 2009, NACPM spearheaded this partnership to achieve federal recognition for Certified Professional Midwives. The initial goal of the MAMA Campaign has been to amend the Social Security Act to mandate Medicaid reimbursement for CPM services, an essential step in the integration of a health care profession into the maternity care system in the U.S. Passage of this amendment will also support private payer reimbursement, support state licensure, and ensure that CPMs will be able to participate in health care reforms that will define who is able to provide and be reimbursed for services over the next decade.
