Many women feel there is no safer or more loving place to give birth than in their own home with the assistance of a midwife. The home setting is familiar and natural -- a place where the new baby and family are together from the start. The evidence shows that home birth is a safe option for low-risk mothers who desire less intervention during their births. Atlanta Birth Care midwives have served low risk mothers in the Atlanta Metro area for decades but have now retired. It was an incredible honor to serve the families we worked with.

Currently Georgia direct-entry midwives are facing cease & desist orders from the State Board of Nursing even though the CPMs have been very clear they aren't practicing as nurses or CNMs.
Educate your legislators about national certification for the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). The Board of Nursing has no intention to make the current law work.Contact Your Legislator Now!
