What is a Certified Nurse Midwife?

  • We are women's health care specialists, trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of issues that women may encounter throughout their lives. From delivering babies to independently treating women's health conditions, our expertise is backed by established guidelines and evidence-based practices. In addition to prenatal care and childbirth, midwives also provide general women’s health care. This includes annual exams, preventive care, and contraception counseling.

  • Our CNMs are registered nurses that must graduate from a master's or higher-level nurse-midwifery program, pass the national Certified Nurse-Midwife Examination through the American Midwifery Certification Board and hold state licensure.
