COVID-19 Homebirth Information for Midwives


Salute and Congratulations to all Registered Midwives in Alberta, as we honor you in this year of the Midwife and the Nurse! Special wishes go out to each and every Registered Midwife for Tuesday, May 5, 2020, as we celebrate International Day of the Midwife! You are a small but mighty force in maternity care in this province. Your clients and families benefit from your primary care - Council and Staff at CMA.

This letter to you highlights the public mandate of the CMA: importance of client choice in these unprecedented times. In addition, both NRP and FHS are addressed, by way of staying current in those two areas.
