Midwifery Services FAQs

A CNM is an advanced practice registered nurse that specializes in women’s care. They focus on preventative and educational information in women’s health. For women who are pregnant, a Certified Nurse Midwife concentrates on low-intervention pregnancies. However if an emergency or surgical situation arises during birth, a Certified Nurse Midwife collaborates with an Obstetrician/Gynecologist.
