Nominations Open for All Board Positions
The Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) is the organization that unites all
midwives under a single cause – the advancement of midwifery – regardless of credential,
degree, or route of entry. When MANA is strong, all midwives are stronger. The last decade has
seen MANA struggling under the weight of its own history, and too organizationally bound to
move forward effectively. Drastic action is needed to bring the vision of our founders in
alignment with the priorities of midwifery in the 2020s.
The future of MANA has arrived!
ALL BOARD POSITIONS are open for nominations and elections.
* A newly-elected board, committed to the proven effectiveness of midwives in the reduction of
health inequities will lead all midwives in the fight to improve the lives of mothers,
babies, birthing people and families of every description.
* A newly-elected board, committed to birth justice and social justice, will support all midwives
working to improve outcomes and reduce inequities in their communities.
* A newly-elected board, supporting a generation of midwives who came up in a country with
legal midwifery in all but a few states will lead midwives in the fight for recognition and
respect as the logical care providers for all birthing people
ALL BOARD POSITIONS are open for nominations and elections. In order to keep our election
cycles in place, each position will last for the current term only (see below). This shortened term
will not apply to the 3-term limit and all elected members are welcome to run for election again
when their term is up.
This is your opportunity to birth a new MANA in your image. MANA needs midwives from every
community, every part of the country, every race, gender, culture, route of entry, and practice
credential to nominate themselves or their friends to be part of the rebirth of the Midwives
Alliance of North America. Nominate someone today! Send nominations to [email protected].
