Special Beginnings is very proud to have received from the American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM) the designation of a “Triple Aim” Best Practice for the year 2016. This means that we achieved nationally established benchmarks for physiologic birth including high breastfeeding rates, low preterm birth rates and low primary cesarean rates.
ACNM gathers data every year to monitor, maintain and improve the quality of midwifery care in this Benchmarking project that aims to provide quality assurance by midwives and for midwives. The data analysis provides evidence of the improved outcomes that midwifery care produces and emphasizes how important it is that all families have access to midwives!
