This is our First Annual VA ACNM Midwifery Week auction! Midwives believe every person has a right to equitable, ethical, accessible, quality health care. Individuals and communities are empowered by the midwifery model of care, which fosters compassionate collaborations and personalizes care based on each person's life experiences and expertise. Your support allows us to advocate for access to midwifery care throughout the Commonwealth, provides scholarships to student midwives and BIPOC midwives to attend national and state conferences, supports a leadership fellowship with the organization, and provides educational and networking support for midwives.
