What is a Midwife?
Midwifery as practiced by certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) encompasses a full range of primary health care services for women from adolescence beyond menopause. These services include primary care, gynecologic and family planning services, preconception care, care during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.
A good idea for anyone contemplating a pregnancy, but particularly those who have never been pregnant, or with any underlying health concerns or problems with previous pregnancies.
