Certified Nurse Midwife

Certified Nurse Midwife

Welcome

A Certified Nurse Midwife works with women who have relatively low-risk pregnancies—from prenatal visits through labor and delivery. They can provide care after the pregnancy, too, counseling new mothers. Some Certified Nurse Midwives work alongside gynecologists to help women throughout their reproductive lives, from puberty to menopause.
