Thank you for Standing Up With MANA by sharing our “Royal Baby and ACOG Response” blog on Facebook! To show our appreciation, we want to make it easier for you to join us in our efforts to keep Standing Up. As MANA's Vice President, I am offering a $20 membership fee discount on ALL membership categories (student, active and retired midwives, and supportive members) to anyone who already shared the blog from MANA's Facebook page, or anyone who shares it prior to June 15, 2019. If you shared it from a different page, you are eligible too - just make a comment under the Facebook post of the blog on MANA's page and tell us where you shared it. Then, send an email to me at and I'll send you the discount code to apply to a new or renewal membership fee. It's time to Be Seen, Be Heard, Stand Up. It's time to join MANA.

As to not induce before fully ready, we appreciate your patience in the extra labor it has taken us to develop our conference schedule this year!

Membership discount for MEAC program students

Increased educational opportunities

The Midwives Alliance of North America is excited to offer new MANA membership categories for MEAC accredited programs. Working with the Midwifery Education Accreditation Council to increase educational opportunities for MEAC-enrolled students, MANA has created three levels (Standard, Silver, and Premium) for MEAC-school membership in MANA. Along with access to recordings from educational sessions presented at previous and future MANA annual conferences, students in participating MEAC programs will be eligible for a discounted yearly MANA student membership rate of $35. Increasing levels of membership will include additional school benefits at annual MANA conferences.

As always, newly credentialed midwives, regardless of credential are eligible for a free one-year MANA membership which gives full voting privileges and all membership benefits.

MANA is looking to the future and stands with students as we work together to increase the midwifery work force that will provide the humanized care shown to improve the health of our communities.


Join MANA as we strive to unite and strengthen all midwives.
