  2. CPM to CNM
    You actually don't have to be an L&D nurse to be a CNM. I struggled with the idea, and then decided against it. The hospital where I wanted to work, because it would help me pay for my master's...

  3. The Mama Sherpas?
    I have heard about it and I'm excited to see it. That's so cool that your practice was featured! Above poster, it's a documentary, not a TV show.

  5. Distance required for midwives
    I don't know of any states that have regulations stating how far a birth center may be from a hospital. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. Also bear in mind that there are AABC-accredited birth...

  6. Do you believe that socioeconomics and educations are biggest factors?
    I grew up in this area, and all I can say is agreed x 1000! I work in the Bronx now, and 95% of my patients are lovely and appreciative of their care (granted, I am a midwife, not an ED RN). I...

    Do you really feel that that is a midwife's sole role, attending women through pregnancy?

  8. Why so reluctant to give pain meds?
    Agree 100% with Esme12. I have never really understood why some nurses do not understand pain control and feel that giving anyone narcotics will make them an addict. Esme, they gave you a hard...

  11. Are these things a CNM would do?
    How is this NOT intolerant? How? I'm sorry if you're disappointed in people's responses. The OP asked for advice about the real world of midwifery. I'm a practicing midwife and a member of...

  12. Are these things a CNM would do?
    If you view my posts in this thread as attacking, you are extraordinarily sensitive. Stating that straights parents are better inherently means that gay parents are lacking. Lesser. Suboptimal. ...

  13. Are these things a CNM would do?
    Actually, that's exactly what homophobia is---gay people are lesser humans than straight people.

  17. Are these things a CNM would do?
    I'm going to be honest with you, and I don't care if you completely dismiss me. It's very tough to find a position as a new grad midwife right now. Admissions are at record high levels at midwifery...

    No, to call yourself a midwife you need to go through a master's program specifically for midwifery. It is a separate type of advanced practice nursing, different from NPs, CRNAs, etc. Once you...

    Well, you need to graduate from an accredited program. Then pass the boards. After you do this you apply for and receive your certification and state license.
