Position Statements

CAM’s Position Statements outline our views on key issues around sexual and reproductive health. Topics rage from anti-racism to working conditions. These statements help influence the conversation and move legislation towards our goal of equitable access to excellent sexual, reproductive, and newborn midwifery services for everyone.

New Position Statement: Midwives’ Provision of Abortion

Access to safe and legal abortion is a human right and providing abortion care and post abortion care is part of the role of Canadian midwives. The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) supports Canadian midwives who already provide abortion and post-abortion care and midwives who are working to integrate this care into their practice and calls on midwives and all reproductive health care providers to work to ensure access to abortion care in Canada.
