NACM Launches Two New Publications!
In Fall 2019, NACM published two new booklets.
Guided by our Ancestors: Indigenous Midwives and Advocacy explores the role of Indigenous midwives in reproductive justice, rights, recognition and restoration. >>>
Diverse Pathways: Bringing Indigenous Midwifery home, aims to share some examples of the multiple pathways Indigenous midwives have taken to return midwifery to our communities. >>>
NACM Gathering 2019: Lighting the Eastern Fire
Every year, NACM members gather to connect, share about our work and communities, learn, and plan for the future of Indigenous midwifery in Canada.
This year’s Gathering took place on Saturday, October 26 in Kjipuktuk (Halifax, NS) at the Westin Nova Scotian and the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre.
Launch of NACM’s Core Competency Framework
This Summer, NACM launched Indigenous Midwifery Knowledge and Skills: A Framework of Competencies.
The intent of this document is to provide a competency framework which can be used to start growing and teaching Indigenous midwifery. This document can be adapted as communities and Nations input their own knowledge, traditions and ways. >>>
