Welcome to North Carolina Friends of Midwives, the voice of out-of-hospital birthing families since 1997.

Legislative Mission Statement

North Carolina Friends of Midwives recognize a woman’s right to choose the setting and care provider for birth, the validity and safety of a planned home birth attended by a trained midwife, the need to assure that the standards of care are maintained and that care providers are held accountable for their actions.

North Carolina Friends of Midwives shall seek the introduction and passage of legislation to license Certified Professional Midwives to address these issues, shall continue to be present to prevent legislation to the contrary, and shall insist on the correction of the statutory and regulatory deficiencies.
