Abstract: The ONTARIO ASSOCIATION OF MIDWIVES (OAM) is a support group for midwives and home-birth supporters. The core of the group are active lay midwives who are working towards setting standards and gaining legal recognition for midwives.
OAM puts out a quarterly newsletter, called "Issue." The group will provide information, if and when possible, to help people find a home-birth attendant.
OAM also has conferences and workshops to help expand the knowledge and connections among mid-wives. Membership is open to all supporters for a $15 annual fee (sent to OAM P.O. Box 85, Postal Station C,
Toronto, Ontario M6J 3M7).
This abstract was published in the Connexions Digest in 1982.
One of the members of the OAM operates a mail-order book and supply company for people who are looking for more information on birth, parenting and health care. An example is, "The Whole Birth Catalogue" which is available for $1.50 plus .50 cents postage. A free price list is available by sending a self addressed stamped envelope to The Whole Birth Catalogue, 20 London Rd. W., Guelph, Ontario, N1H 2B5.
