The Colorado Midwives Association supports and promotes the option of birth at home for childbearing families in Colorado. The CMA facilitates communication and community among direct-entry midwives through conferences and workshops. Direct-entry midwives have been legal in Colorado since 1993 due to the efforts of the CMA, and the CMA continues to be the legislative force behind maintaining and updating the regulation of direct-entry midwifery in Colorado.

“In all cultures the midwife’s place is on the threshold of life, where intense human emotions – fear, hope, longing, triumph and incredible physical power – enable a new human being to emerge. Her vocation is unique.”
