The Voice of Midwives in New York
New York Midwives acknowledges our role in midwifery’s history of white supremacy and racist exclusion, described in full in ACNM’s truth and reconciliation statement. Our vision is for NYM to be an expansive, diverse, and anti-racist organization that amplifies historically excluded voices throughout the state in pursuit of empowered, and informed healthcare for every New Yorker.
New York Midwives (NYM) is a professional organization dedicated to fostering anti-racist, empowered, high quality sexual, reproductive, and primary healthcare through the promotion and practice of midwifery in New York State.
