    Simple difference...CNM can do delivers and NP can't.

    Yep, CNMs catch babies. WHNP deal with women's health, can do prenatal care but not the delivery, and primarily gyn.

    True, I was inferring that she was referring to a certified nurse-midwife, when it's possible she was not. There are also CPMs and DEMs, which don't require a nursing degree.
