Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are licensed health care practitioners educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery.

They provide primary care to women, including:

  • Prenatal Care 
  • Labor and Delivery Care
  • Care after Birth 
  • Gynecological Exams
  • Newborn Care
  • Assistance with Family Planning Decisions
  • Preconception Care
  • Menopausal Management
  • Counseling in Health Maintenance
  • Disease Prevention

 

The Heart of Midwifery Care for women and newborns lies more in the nature of that care, than in its specific components.

Midwifery practice has a firm foundation in the critical thought process and is focused on the prevention of disease and the promotion of health, taking the best from the disciplines of midwifery, nursing, public health and medicine to provide safe, holistic care.

Its a miracle!
