A midwife is a healthcare professional who provides care to women during preconception care, pregnancy, labour, delivery, and post-partum care. A midwife can deliver a baby at a birthing center, certain hospitals, and at home. There are different levels of training and certification for midwives:
- Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) – are registered nurses who have graduated from a nurse-midwifery program; they can practice in all 50 states and the District of Columbia
- Certified midwives (CMs) – non-nurse midwives who have a bachelor’s degree or higher and have also completed the midwifery program; they can practice in only a few states.
- Certified professional midwives (CPMs) – non-nurse midwives who have the training and clinical experience in childbirth; they can practice in only a few states.
Certified nurse-midwives have the authority to diagnose, refer to specialists, treat STIs, assist during cesarean sections, care for the newborn up to the first 28 days of life, and prescribe medication.
Associations and Organizations for Midwives:
- American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM)
- National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM)
- International Confederation of Midwives
- North American Registry of Midwives
