NARM is committed to supporting the success of CPMs. As autonomous practitioners, CPMs must also be innovative business owners. While the care provided by CPMs is individualized to each woman she serves, NARM recognizes that the professionalization of midwifery can be supported by practitioners working together to develop standards for practice, charting, continuing education, marketing materials, and most importantly: a healthy midwifery community. NARM encourages CPMs to join their local, state, and national professional organizations and to share resources and knowledge that can improve quality of care and support sustainable careers for independent midwives.
