Certified Nurse Midwives

Certified Nurse Midwives are independent health care providers that have prescriptive authority. CNMs have training and careers rooted in hospital nursing. They can practice in hospitals, as well as homes and birth centers, and often work in both groups and as solo practitioners. The philosophy of nurse midwifery is founded on affirming the power and strength of women, and the importance that their health has in the well-being of families and communities.
