I am greatly interested in focusing my nursing career on obstetrics. However, I am even more intrigued by the idea of helping mothers' decrease their risk for delivery complications by encouraging a healthy pregnancy. I amnearing a crossroads in my path to nursing--one path leads to midwifery and the other to NP with OB emphasis. Are there particular demographics or geographics that better suited to one practice? What are some defining differences of each, both beneficial and detrimental?
