Can NPs deliver babies?

  1. 0 I was speaking to a women's health NP who stated her doctor is going to train her to deliver babies. I thought you have to be a CNM to deliver...anyone know if it's in the scope of practice for NPs?

    would also be interested in knowing this! PS: What state are you in, or the woman you talked to practice in?

    I delivered 5 during my OB rotation but I'd only do it in an emergency situation, as in ER.
    You need to by a certified midwife otherwise.

    It is completely outside the scope of practice for any NP, unless they are dual certified as a CNM.
