WHO WE ARE
Certified Nurse Midwives are licensed health care practitioners educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery.
They provide primary care to women, including:
Labor and Delivery Care
Care after Birth
Assistance with Family Planning Decisions
Counseling in Health Maintenance
The Heart of Midwifery Care for women and newborns lies more in the nature of that care, than in its specific components.
Midwifery practice has a firm foundation in the critical thought process and is focused on the prevention of disease and the promotion of health, taking the best from the disciplines of midwifery, nursing, public health and medicine to provide safe, holistic care.

Midwives Make a Difference
ACNM Illinois State Affiliate
Reinforcing our Commitment
The Board of Directors of the Illinois Affiliate of the American College of Nurse Midwives celebrates the work of Illinois non-profit organizations that support the people and communities we care for. Midwives work with these organizations to support our patients in caring for their whole selves and families.
Philanthropic support from the Illinois ACNM Affiliate is available annually for non-profit organizations working in alignment with midwives on issues including (but not limited to) access to health care, social services, mental health, and reproductive justice. Donations up to $1,000 are available annually for a specific project, event, or program.
Applications are due July 1. Funds are distributed in September.
Emergency Funding for Organizations Impacted by COVID-19
Given the impacts of the pandemic on our service network, the Illinois Affiliate Board has named two (2) emergency grants, each $1000 for a non-profit organization that can be used either operationally in replacement of lost fundraising due to event cancellations, or for a specific project created in response to COVID-19. One grant will go to an organization in the Greater Chicago area (Cook County and the collar counties), and one grant will go to an organization in central or southern Illinois.
Application due by May 31, 2020
