Our mission is to strengthen and support excellence in the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) profession and influence birth health policy to ensure that all childbearing people and babies of Georgia have a healthy start.
We also envision a midwifery workforce that mirrors the community of birthing people found in Georgia. NACPM-Georgia stands with the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM) in committing to:
· Investing in a strong CPM workforce that is racially, ethnically, and socially representative that can meet the needs of all childbearing people;
· Ensuring that families have access to the services of CPMs that are a part of their culture
· Opposing the oppression of LGBTQ people
· Understanding and addressing the compound negative impact of oppression on marginalized childbearing people with multiple intersecting identities.
