The Indiana Midwives Association is a state professional organization dedicated to promote high standards of midwifery care and safe childbirth alternatives. Founded in 1982, the membership includes midwives, doulas, childbirth professionals and consumers who foster unity among midwives with respect to differences in education and professional practices.
Choosing a midwife
It is highly recommended that families meet with and carefully check the background and qualifications of potential birth attendants. Whenever possible, it is an excellent idea to interview multiple providers before selecting. Midwives differ in their training, philosophies, services, and fees. Not every midwife is right for every woman.*
