Moving Forward: The Power of Collaboration
Abstract:In this column, the associate editor of The Journal of Perinatal Education (JPE) discusses the joint statement of the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA), and National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NCPM)—“Supporting Healthy and Normal Physiologic Childbirth: A Consensus Statement by ACNM, MANA, and NCPM.” The statement is presented as a model of collaboration that has the potential to create needed change in maternity care. The associate editor also highlights the contents of this issue, which include birth stories (one, an autoethnography) as well as research on doulas, kangaroo mother care, and partners’ perceptions of prenatal care.
