Tennessee Midwives Association Practice Guidelines

Midwifery care is the autonomous practice of giving care to women during pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period, as well as care to the newborn infant. Midwifery care is provided in accordance with established standards, which promote safe and competent care. The Midwife implements these standards through adherence to the Tennessee Midwives Association (TMA) Practice Guidelines and MANA’s Core Competencies.
