Joint Midwifery Committee Meets

On Wednesday, February 17, 2010 the Midwifery Joint Committee (MJC) met in Raleigh to discuss their ongoing study of the possible licensure of Certified Professional Midwives.  Currently CPM’s are not registered or licensed by the State of North Carolina. 

John Albert, MD, president of the North Carolina Obstetrical and Gynecological Society, and Haywood Brown, MD, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University Medical Center, both represented their specialty and offered comments to the committee.  The MJC will continue to meet throughout the spring with the goal of presenting draft legislation to the General Assembly in May.  The next meeting will be held on March 16, 2010 at 2:00 pm.  The NCMS has attended each meeting of the committee and will continue to keep our members informed of the MJC’s study.
