Midwives of Color

The ACNM's Midwives of Color (MOC) Committee works to recruit and retain persons of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds to the profession of midwifery. We also provide educational preparation to ACNM members to develop respect for cultural variations and increase awareness and responsiveness to maternal/child health care issues affecting people of color. The MOC Committee has established a national mentoring program for student midwives of color. If you would like to find or to become a midwifery mentor, please contact Heather Clarke at chair4mocc@gmail.com
