Nurse Midwives

The Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (NM/WHNP) program is designed to prepare registered nurses to manage a woman’s normal obstetrical and gynecological needs during the childbearing years, manage the care of the normal newborn, and provide primary care to women throughout the lifespan. Midwifery practice has undergone remarkable changes over the last 75 years. In the early part of the 20th century, the only place midwives could attend births was at home. Later, the hospital became virtually the only place in which midwives could attend births, and there was a great debate among the midwifery community in the 1970s about the safety of homebirth.

Midwives are well-suited to care for healthy women who expect to have a normal birth. They provide prenatal care, care during labor and birth, and care after the birth. Midwives attend births in many hospitals throughout the United States, and they attend most of the births that take place in out-of-hospital birth centers and homes.
