What is a Certified Nurse-Midwife?

Midwives are Advanced Practice Providers specifically trained in the care of women in both nursing and midwifery. Nurse-midwives are licensed to provide prenatal care and perform deliveries, but also provide gynecologic care from adolescence to menopause. Teaching women how to prevent disease and maintain good health throughout their lives is at the core of nurse-midwifery care.

Nurse-midwives believe in each individual woman's freedom to experience pregnancy in a safe, satisfying and supportive environment. It is the hope and philosophy of nurse-midwives to provide loving, educated and competent prenatal (OB) care.
