The CMA stands with all BIPOC women, men, children and 2SLGBTQ+ people in their outrage of the dehumanizing racism and discrimination that is entrenched in our society. We acknowledge that racism and other forms of discrimination are a systemic as well as an individual problem that inflicts profound emotional, physical, and psychological injury on our BIPOC communities and individuals. The CMA is committed to examining our role in this system and to educating ourselves and our members about dismantling individual biases, and deconstructing racist and discriminatory beliefs, assumptions, and practices. The road ahead is long, and mistakes will be made, however we firmly believe in the importance of equity for all people and are committed to action. Respectfully submitted from the Staff and Council of the College of Midwives of Alberta.
The College of Midwives of Alberta is the governing and regulatory body that oversees the registration and practice of midwifery throughout the province of Alberta.

Consensus Statement: Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should be offered vaccination at any time if they are eligible, and no contraindications exist.
This decision is based on the women’s personal values and an understanding that the risk of infection and/or morbidity from COVID-19 outweighs the theorized and undescribed risk of being vaccinated during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Women should not be precluded from vaccination based on pregnancy status or breastfeeding.
