  • Midwives of color continuing education scholarships
  • Midwife continuing education program grants
  • JumpStart NARM study program for midwife students of color

  • Education and information programs for the public and midwifery care community
  • Continuing education credits for CA licensed midwives (with the support of a California licensed midwife volunteer from CALM, using the criteria as established in regulation)
  • Policy advocacy for maternity care access (for instance, filing complaints and follow up with California department of public health when California perinatal diagnostic centers refuse to provide care to licensed midwife clients)
