What is a Midwife?

Midwifery as practiced by CNMs encompasses a full range of primary healthcare services for women from adolescence to beyond menopause. These services include primary care, gynecologic and family planning services, preconception care, care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period, care of the normal newborn during the first 28 days of life, and treatment of male partners for sexually transmitted infections. These services are provided in diverse settings such as ambulatory care clinics, private offices, community and public health systems, homes, hospitals, and birth centers. The Midwifery Model of Care, which supports and protects the normal birth process, is appropriate for the majority of women during pregnancy and birth.
