“There are few leaders in the American maternal health system that I respect and admire more than Ginger and Lesley. They have improved the wellbeing of countless moms and babies, not only through their own clinical practices, but through building professional bridges and laying the foundation for how midwives and physicians, birth centers and hospitals, can and should work together.”

- NEEL SHAH, MD, MPP, FACOG

“Ginger has been my ideal model of professional midwifery for over 20 years...  It was Ginger’s wisdom and professional demeanor, tireless research into best practices and seasoned leadership that made the practice a success...  She combines a unique mix of experience, warmth, intelligence, practicality and passion which she brings to every project to which she commits.”

✨The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data is out. Each May updated information is released about professions wage statistics. Although not all states report data on Midwife salaries — we are finally seeing wages move up compared to previous years. [Note the Certified Midwife, CM credential has yet to be recognized in federal statutes, an error in not only complete reporting but also equivalency in certification, scope and role of the CNM ] www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes291161.htm#GrowMidwives uses data from BLS, national online APP surveys, and our growing database of over 400 clients to help midwives understand how to negotiate to get paid their worth. Stay tuned for upcoming posts and action including:1. A Comparative analysis of BLS trend data on salaries for midwives2. New updates to website presentations on ‘Getting paid your worth’3. Submit motion to ACNM annual meeting for the Board to conduct and publish national survey data on Midwifery Compensation - the last published information on this critical data was in 2011, of no value, and in some cases a barrier to fair salary. 4. Submit a motion for ACNM to petition the BLS to request state data on the Certified Midwife, including evidence of licensure and employment in many states.#GrowMidwives #ScalingupandSustainingMidwifery #DecadeoftheMidwife #GrowwithUs ...
