Massachusetts Friends of Midwives (MFOM) is a non-profit organization working to promote and protect the rights of all midwives and the women and families who birth with them.
We are a politically-active, educationally-focused group whose goal is to ensure that good information about childbirth options and about the role of midwifery in modern-day health care is available to all.
We believe that all women and families deserve to have a safe, joyful birth in the setting of their choice and in a manner that is best for them.
“In all cultures, the midwife’s place is on the threshold of life, where intense human emotions, fear, hope, longing, triumph, and incredible physical power-enable a new human being to emerge. Her vocation is unique.”
