I have been reading about the closure of birthing centers and some midwifery schools. It seemed to me that in the early '90's there was a resurgence of interest in midwifery, but now malpractice insurance
for cnms has skyrocketed and it is becoming more difficult to find md's who are willing to provide backup. What happened? I would have liked to go back to school for cnm but in this climate, I am unsure if that would be a good move for me financially (would really hate to spend big $$ and not be able to find a position). Are the cnm schools addressing this situation? Does anyone know if there are positive expectations for cnm for the future?
