we need your help!
Your gift makes all the difference.
In this time of global pandemic and financial crisis, the need is greater than ever and our mission is as relevant as ever. From day 1 of the COVID-19 pandemic, midwives have been there for families, accommodating an influx of new home birth clients, caring for families in hospitals, and adapting models of care to encompass telehealth, new collaborations, and auxiliary maternity units. At FAM, we have always invested in midwifery. We recognize the need for a thriving and diverse midwifery workforce, equitable access to care, and high-quality research. Now, as much as ever, we must continue to move midwifery forward in North America, building racial equity into every aspect of our work.
We ask our FAM community to give if you can.

Thank you for improving maternity care
If you care about improving maternity care by increasing access to midwives in all birth settings (at home, in birth centers, and in hospitals), FAM deserves your donation. Since 2003 FAM has given more than $1,000,000 to projects in research, public policy, public education, international access, and halth equity using the midwifery model of care.
Be the change, join the Birth Trust
Our supporters determine our grant making.
Birth Trustees know we need to fix our maternity care crisis. Our rates of maternal and infant mortality, cesarean sections, and unnecessary medical interventions must change. Greater integration of midwifery care in hospitals, birth centers, and at home is the solution.
You can join the Birth Trust with a minimum monthly contribution of $20 or a one-time annual gift of $240. We will send you an electronic ballot every spring to vote on the best projects to advance midwifery. Please read about our past grantees to see where your money goes.
Share our campaign video “Everyone Deserves a Midwife” with all of your friends.
