The Pennsylvania Association of Certified Professional Midwives (PACPM) is a state chapter of the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM). We are a professional membership organization. We seek to serve and represent Certified Professional Midwives living or serving families in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
PACPM seeks to promote the health and well being of mothers and babies by preserving the art of midwifery, providing support and resources for professional members, advocating for licensure for CPMs in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and influencing maternal health policy.
Members of PACPM envision a maternity care system where women and babies are served by experts in their risk level, are able and supported in their desire to birth in hospitals, free standing birthing centers and at home, and where Certified Professional midwives are licensed as autonomous, primary maternity care providers
