Can someone please explain the different types or levels of "certification" for midwives? I've heard of nurse midwives, certified nurse midwives and a few others I think that don't have the word "certified" in them. Is the main difference in them their approach to childbirth, level of education, level of experience or what? Also, I have heard that the laws governing midwifery are different depending on the state you're in. Is this true (I'm in Minnesota if anyone knows specifics for my state)?
I noticed that a nurse midwife is all my insurance seems to support which doesn't matter to me either way. I'm not pg now but researching for the future. I'd like to be as informed as possible when the time comes!
