This has been an excellent discussion. 



In regards to education - someone posted their credentials for a school local to them - and I wanted to share the credentials/program of a school near me as well just so everyone can understand that SOME programs are good and SOME programs are bad.  SOME give a wonderful education, and SOME do not.  Carefully choosing your course of study is important.

It is estimated that the education part only takes approximately 36 months (3 years), then to fulfill our state's requirements and the NARM PEP Requirements another 1-2 years.  So 4-5 years total.  It is then recommended a midwife continue to gain knowledge and experience by apprenticing even further before beginning her own practice.   I feel it is a balanced program for a CNM before seeking licensing.
