CNMA and the California Birth Center Association (CABCA) have arranged for Dr. Holly Powell Kennedy to share her expertise and provide us with the inspiration for our legislative effort as we move on the road to Autonomous Practice!!!

March 15, 2015 (Register by March 11)


Fullerton, California 

You are invited to a dinner reception and education event where you can meet Holly and hear her speak to the subject that is near and dear to our hearts - midwifery and the role we all have to solidify access to midwifery care! If you have never had a chance to hear Holly speak she is not only a wealth of knowledge but very motivational in her presentations.

Dr. Kennedy, is the co-author of the 2014 Lancet Midwifery series and immediate past president of ACNM. The evening will include dinner and a presentation recalling our midwifery heritage, highlighting our unique care, and motivate us in our journey to autonomous practice. In addition, our sponsor will present on Management of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding.

A donation of $50 will reserve your place at the table!  
Registration is required by 3/11/2015.  
To register, contact Mieke Johnson at Beach Cities Midwifery (949) 215-7575 or via email at
