Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are registered nurses (RNs) who
have specialized education and midwifery training and certification.
Nurse-midwives care for women before and after pregnancy, deliver babies in
hospitals and in homes, and provide family planning and birth control counseling. They also provide gynecological services such as physical and breast exams, Pap
smears, pelvic exams, and preventive health screening. They are qualified to
order tests and prescribe medicines.
Nurse-midwives are licensed by the state in which they practice.
Most nurse-midwives are nationally certified in their specialty areas.
