Certified Midwives Q & A
What are certified midwives?
Certified midwives are health care professionals who maintain master’s degrees but don’t necessarily have nursing backgrounds. They complete graduate-level midwifery education programs accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME) and pass a national certification examination with the American Midwifery Certification Board.
To maintain certified midwife credentials, professionals get recertified every five years and complete specific continuing education requirements.
Which services do certified midwives offer?
Like certified midwives (CMs), CMs offer a wide array of primary health care and OB/GYN services from adolescence to menopause and beyond. Examples include:
- Well-woman exams
- Pap tests
- Prenatal care
- Family planning
- Obstetrics care
- Midwife births and postpartum care
- Menopausal management
- Primary care and health promotion
- Contraception counseling
- Childbirth education
- Disease prevention
- Diagnostic testing and treatment
Certified midwives facilitate natural childbirth whenever possible. They help you deliver your baby at a hospital and help accommodate your birthing plan preferences.
