Midwifery-related E-mail Addresses

[Organizations for Midwives, Childbirth Educators, Doulas] [Media] [Schools]
[Organizations for Parents and Families (also good for practitioners)] [Other Health Organizations]

Here's a short and incomplete list of midwifery organizations, publications, schools, and some other health-related entities that have e-mail addresses.

Also look at the page I maintain for organizations with web pages.

There are a few organizations listed here that do not have e-mail addresses, but I included them because of their usefulness to midwives or people seeking a midwife

Please contact me if you have corrections or if you know of any midwifery/birth/health group with an e-mail address that is not on this list. I need your help to make this list as complete as possible.
