ATM Membership Benefits

The Association of Texas Midwives (ATM) would like to encourage you to join us! ATM works hard to represent the interests of midwives all across our state. 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. As a member of ATM, your Regional Director can keep you informed of current issues, and express your concerns to the ATM Board of Directors and to the Midwifery Program.

There are many advantages to you as a member of ATM. Please take a look at the boxes below for examples. If you would like to know more you may write us or contact a Regional Director . To send a snail mail or call, use the following address or phone number:
