North Carolina Friends of Midwives is a grassroots organization of midwifery advocates dedicated to promoting, supporting, and protecting midwifery in North Carolina. We advocate the preservation of midwife-attended births, in accordance with the Midwives Model of Care™ including those at home and in freestanding birth centers. We represent families seeking access to independent midwives and work together with the North Carolina Midwives Alliance to promote legislative issues important to midwives and the families they serve.

Our Goals:

  • Legalize Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs)
  • Expand access & availability of homebirth CPMs and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs)
  • Educate the public on the availability of alternative birth options
  • Promote the safety of midwifery care


  • North Carolina Physicians for Midwives
  • Childbirth Connection: A program of The National Partnership for Women and Families
  • Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS)
  • The American Public Health Association
