Exciting new opportunities are emerging to grow the midwifery profession to truly meet the needs of the childbearing population, to achieve state licensure for all CPMs, to improve reimbursement and expand employment options. At the same time, changes for CPMs are causing concern and worry about what will happen for midwives ‘on the ground” – a phenomenon common among professions as they develop and adapt to changing circumstances.

Mary CropJoin Mary Lawlor, NACPM Executive Director, and Jo Anne Myers-Ciecko, Strategic Consultant to learn more about “CPMs: Midwifery Landscape and Future Directions” a set of briefing papers and recommendations developed by NACPM. Intended to inform and support midwives by providing answers to your questions and suggestions about how you can prepare to take advantage of rapidly emerging opportunities for CPMs, this webinar will include an orientation to the briefing papers and how they might be used in study groups, state meetings, midwifery schools and practices.
