Our Goals

ATM works hard to represent the interests of midwives all across the state of Texas. We keep a close eye on legislation, and attend meetings of the Texas Department of Health Midwifery Board to be sure the needs of Texas midwives are communicated. Through the help of their Regional Directors, ATM members are able to keep informed of current issues. Every member is encouraged to express her/his concerns to the ATM Board of Directors and to the Midwifery Program. If you are a Texas Midwife and have not already done so, we encourage you to join us.

Statement of Philosophy

As midwives, we believe the practice of midwifery to be distinct from the practice of medicine. Midwifery is a discipline pertaining to a normal cycle of life, the childbearing years. We base our profession on the midwifery model of care:

  • Pregnancy and birth are a fundamentally healthy process.
  • Each woman is unique and her care should be tailored to meet her individual needs.
  • Attending to the emotional and spiritual components of childbearing are as important as appropriate antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum physical care.
  • Midwives should be trained by other midwives, be that training in a school or through apprenticeship.
  • Midwives should maintain a professional attitude and practice which promotes collegial relationships between physicians, midwives and students.
  • The relationship between midwives and their clients are collaborative in nature.

Mission Statement

To advance the quality and accessibility of midwifery in Texas.
