The mission of Midwifery Matters is to support the growth
and development of our evolving CPM profession as well
as evidence-based midwifery practice in the out-of-hospital
setting. We hope to do this by providing a forum to share
research, post research updates, and dialogue on issues
relevant to the field.
Content is designed to keep alumni and other midwives
up to date on research, clinical practice, and professional
and political issues relevant to the midwife practicing in
the home or birth center setting. Much of the research
and writing is the work of the students, faculty, and alumni of Birthwise Midwifery School, and it also serves as a forum for alumni news.
