Mary DeLashmutt became a CNM in 1969. She is a birth activist in the Bahamas. She is the founder and a member of Doula Delight.

She says her goals for midwifery are no different that that of IAM. Mary tells us: “For the Bahamas, my hope is to have mother respectful, safe, normal and natural birth become the way of birth in this Commonwealth rather than the abusive event it is. I will not live long enough to see it happen but I envision, one day, an empowerment sufficient enough for women to have the birth they want, safely and with respect for the gift they give this world: new life, new hope and the uniqueness of the baby › child › adult that newborn becomes.”
