October 4, 2020 – October 10, 2020
National Midwifery Week (#NMW2020) was created by ACNM to celebrate and recognize midwives and midwife-led care. It's time to display your pride in the hallmarks of midwifery that you deliver every day; this week is for you and about you.
This year's theme is "Midwives for Equity." Midwives play a key part in enhancing equity among all populations of the United States. Midwives believe every person has a right to equitable, ethical, accessible, quality health care. The midwifery model of care empowers individuals and communities, creates compassionate partnerships, and personalizes care based upon each individual’s life experiences and knowledge.
