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.

The Colorado Midwives Association is an all-inclusive organization established to represent the midwives of Colorado. We support midwives of all races, religions, gender expressions, orientations, citizenships, abilities, and classes. We continue to learn and grow as individuals and as an organization.

Due to Covid-19 all events for the CMA are canceled this year. We’re taking every measure to ensure the safety of our members and board.

“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.”
