o A woman’s right to choose her care provider and place of birth
o Communication and cooperation between midwives and other organizations concerned with improving perinatal outcomes
o Midwifery as a quality health care option
o Public education and midwifery advocacy
o Competency in midwifery practice
o Guidelines for the education of midwives and the development of midwifery education programs
o Research in the field of midwifery care


This is an officially sponsored page of the Midwives Alliance of North America created to connect with our members and supporters online.

In 1982, the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) was established as a professional organization for all midwives, recognizing the diversity of educational backgrounds and practice styles within the profession.

MANA most recently launched the "I Am a Midwife" educational video campaign. You can find our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/iamamidwife Please check it out!

Facebook Page Rules: Any Facebook user who posts: foul/abusive language, pers

MANA seeks to unify and strengthen the profession of midwifery, thereby improving the quality of health care for women, babies, and communities.
