ACNM responds to AMA Resolutions (regarding home birth and doctor supervision of midwives) The American College of Nurse Midwives has responded to recent AMA Resolutions (regarding home birth and doctor supervision of midwives) with a letter to the AMA and addenda. You can read (and download) these documents at: http://www.midwife.org/siteFiles/policy/ACNM_Letter_to_AMA.pdf Susan Hodges from Citizens for Midwifery writes: ‘overall the documents are excellent, and do a good job of affirming home birth and pointing out the outrageousness of ACOG/AMA behavior regarding these issues. The addenda are organized by topic and the statements are well-documented. In my opinion the ACNM has done an outstanding job of refuting all the main issues raised by the AMA’s Resolutions, especially the anti-home birth resolution 205. The addenda in particular should prove to be an excellent resource (including all the references) for supporting the option of planned home birth.” I encourage you to visit Citizens For Midwifery web site at http://cfmidwifery.org/index.aspx To stay current on these and other midwifery issues join Susan’s yahoo group at firstname.lastname@example.org
