We are incredibly excited to have the honor of hosting Dr. Aviva Romm at this year's MANA conference, Shine, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We took this opportunity to talk with her about why she thinks midwifery care can improve lifelong health, the impact of interprofessional tensions between maternity health providers, and critical opportunities for midwives to seize now.
MANA: Why have you chosen to present at Midwives Alliance of North America?
Together with the world, Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) celebrates the arrival of a new royal baby girl for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. While most news reports shared the names of the medical team, the reality is the baby was born into the hands of a midwife. In fact, Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, was cared for by a pair of midwives, in a health system where midwifery led practice is the standard of care.
