A Certified Nurse Midwife is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse with specialized training in midwifery. Midwives have been supporting pregnant women and delivering babies for centuries and the practice of Nurse-midwifery has been revived in the US throughout the twentieth century when Frontier Medical Service was founded in 1925 and used registered nurses trained in midwifery in England (WebMD, 2021).
Modern-day nurse-midwives are qualified to provide care during pre-conception, throughout pregnancy, during birth, and in postpartum care. Nurse-midwives can be found working in hospitals, clinics, birthing centers, midwifery practices, and in patients’ homes. Midwives guide women in natural/low technology, safe childbirth utilizing a holistic care approach.
Once a nurse obtains a bachelor’s degree in nursing and becomes a Registered Nurse, they can then go on to enroll in a graduate program to obtain a master’s degree in midwifery and pass the exam offered by the American Midwifery Certification Board.
