I'm looking into getting my CNM. What's the salary like out there? Is it worth it? What's the salary difference between a CNM and a Lay-midwife? Where I work there aren't a lot of midwives. But where I moved from there was a lot working in the hospitals. How do I go about seeing if there will be a call for CNMs in my area?

From what I'm told it depends on the area of the country that you are employed. I live in Michigan and I think they start around $78 to $82 thousand per year. Go to midwifejobs.com. That may be a good start for you. Also remember the further south you move the less your pay maybe. Happy searching.

Christian Nurse, thanks for the website recommendation. I didn't know it existed, but that is a great resource to have for the future.

Look at the MANA website and the ACNM websites. Also, Midwifery Today has an excellent resource that will help with those questions.
