The purpose of the Our Moment of Truth™ campaign is to improve women's health and maternity care in the United States by re-introducing midwives and midwifery care as an important option that should be the norm for women's health care services. This was validated by the recent release of The Lancet Series on Midwifery in June od 2014., The Lancet, a renowned publication, which is acknowledged world-wide, established midwifery as the standard of care for women world-wide., stating that "a positive impact that can be achieved when effective, high-quality midwifery is available to all women and their babies." The time is now for women everywhere—including you—to understand how midwives partner with women to improve their health throughout the lifespan.
