Please pardon our mess as we work to update our website to bring the most up to date information for our members, future midwives, and the clients and families that we serve. 


Discover Midwives (previously Our Moment of Truth™)

Discover Midwives is an ACNM national level initiative to improve women’s health and maternity care in the United States by re-introducing midwives and midwifery care as important options that should be the norm for women’s health, sexual health, and reproductive health care services.  As an affiliate, we want to extend as many resources as we can from this initiative to help women and families in Virginia.
