Our midwifery course was designed and implemented to grow future midwives essential to improving maternity outcomes for women and babies in our communities, and offers scholarships for women of color and for financial need to help meet the growing demand for midwives who are able to serve diverse communities. Help us honor our mothers, sisters, and daughters by giving them the gift of confidence in themselves and their bodies. We hope you will consider partnering with the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance in our journey toreclaiming birth!
