Nebraska Friends of Midwives is a consumer-based organization seeking to raise public awareness of the benefits and advantages of employing midwives, both independent Midwives and Certified Nurse-Midwives, through public education efforts. We are working to help facilitate a change in the laws of Nebraska to allow midwives to practice more openly and with greater independence. It is our goal to see the laws of Nebraska changed to specifically recognize and license the practice of independent Midwives—who practice primarily in homes and receive their training in a variety of ways—and to change the law which currently prohibits Certified Nurse-Midwives from attending home births. We support the right of women to make an educated decision about where and with whom she will give birth.
