The Oregon Affiliate of the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) believes every person has a right to health care that promotes healing and respects human dignity.


Midwives value:

  • Non-intervention in normal processes

  • Appropriate use of interventions and technology for current or potential health problems

  • Consultation, collaboration and referral with other members of the health care team as needed to provide optimal health care

Midwives prioritize compassionate partnership and are guided by the best evidence available.
