The purpose of the Minnesota Council of Certified Professional Midwives is to promote, protect and preserve midwifery as practiced by CPMs in the state of Minnesota. Consistent with our commitment to maternity care provided in an out of hospital setting, we strive to maintain a safe standard of care in partnership with the families we serve. MCCPM is a federally recognized 501(c) 6 non-profit organization.


Our objectives:

• To educate the public about the option of midwifery care and its safety

• To support women and their families’ choice for birth

• To set a standard of excellence-of-care provided by midwives

• To offer annual peer review and special circumstances reviews as needed

• To maintain skills through continuing education

• To promote research for out of hospital birth with statistics collection

• To encourage communication between midwives and other health care professionals

• To build a sisterhood with midwives both locally and across the country who share common goals, fostered through the work of MANA, NARM, MEAC, CfM, NACPM and MNow!
