MASSACHUSETTS FRIENDS OF MIDWIVES (MFOM) is a non-profit organization working to promote and protect the rights of all midwives and the women and families who birth with them.
We are a politically-active, educationally-focused group whose goal is to ensure that good information about childbirth options and about the role of midwifery in modern-day health care is available to all.
We believe that all women and families deserve to have a safe, joyful birth in the setting of their choice and in a manner that is best for them. Watch our welcome video of midwife-attended births in Massachusetts.
In addition to this site, MFOM runs a blog, a consumer lobbying group to support midwifery legislation, statewide birth circles, and is currently in the process of creating an online version of of the Birthing Resources Directory.

We are always glad to hear from people who may be interested in learning more about birth options and/or in helping with any of our various outreach projects.
