We've been serving midwives, birth enthusiasts and your community since 1986 with heartfelt interest and enthusiastic customer service. Through networking and education, Midwifery Today's mission is to return midwifery care to its rightful position in the family; to make midwifery care the norm throughout the world; and to redefine midwifery as a vital partnership with women.
Midwifery Today began solely as a magazine in 1986. Since then, we have grown into a business that publishes a quarterly magazine and produces a weekly e-mail newsletter. In addition, Midwifery Today has produced and published several books, offers numerous educational aids, and presents domestic and international annual conferences. No matter what endeavor we undertake, our goal is to actively promote midwifery everywhere in the world.
The name of our business is also our motto: midwifery is not a thing of the past, but a viable profession and, more than ever, the best choice for birthing mothers today and in the future. We feel compelled to give a voice to midwifery as a profession, to educate the public and to let our communities know that midwives are working for them in a responsible, reliable and loving manner. We also strive to give individual midwives a voice so they can communicate with and support each other, and become a genuine force for positive change in their communities and for society at large.
In addition, we seek to unify midwives who are on varying paths. When we stand together, we form a powerful block. Let's work together to promote good, safe midwifery care, and to formulate good education strategies for those who aspire to our profession or to childbirth education. Together let's make midwifery the standard of care in the United States, as it is so successfully in many other countries. Let's strengthen our ties to midwives around the world.
