To promote quality maternal and child health care through continuing education and Peer Review of midwives in the Greater Houston area.
As midwives, we believe the practice of midwifery to be distinct from the practice of medicine. We base our profession on the midwifery model of care:
A. Pregnancy and birth are a fundamentally healthy process.
B. Each woman is unique and her care should be tailored to meet her individual needs.
C. Attending to the emotional and spiritual components of childbearing are as important as appropriate antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum physical care.
D. Midwives should be trained by other midwives, be that training in a school or through apprenticeship and continuing education.
E. Midwives should maintain a professional attitude, and practice which promotes collegial relationships between physicians, midwives, and students.
F. The relationship between midwives and their clients is collaborative in nature.
Our members commit to looking within ourselves for any inherent biases we may carry and to doing the work necessary to learn and grow so that we may better serve our communities and our fellow Black midwives. It is our responsibility to be allies, to amplify Black voices, and to stand united with our fellow midwives of color to ensure equality and equity for all. As an organization, GHMA commits to making space for the ongoing work of anti-racism by providing resources and continuing education for our midwives to examine how we personally perpetuate biases and to grow in our understanding to provide better, more culturally competent care. We are committed to dismantling institutionalized racism within our organization.
Black lives matter to us. May we join together to create a caring and inclusive culture.
