NACPM Initiatives and Coalition Work

To achieve its vision and fulfill its purpose, NACPM implements a variety of initiatives and projects. NACPM recognizes the power of building and participating in coalitions to multiply its influence on policy, practice and outcomes. Today, NACPM partners with midwives, consumers and other stakeholders to unify and strengthen midwifery in the U.S. and to influence state and national policy to improve maternity outcomes throughout the country.

Please review these initiatives and partnerships. Send your comments and ideas to and We look forward to hearing from you!
