Hello Wise Women!
I'm interested in getting in to midwifery, but not sure how... Someone recently told me of an eight-month midwifery course somewhere in Ohio, but I have a suspicion that it was a graduate course for a CNM licensure. Anyone know anything about how to become a CPM in Ohio, or if that's even possible since (to the best of my knowledge) Ohio doesn't recognize CPMs?
Also, my Mom (a huge anti-homebirth person) was just telling me that she spoke with a midwife recently who said that she was NOT a CNM, but that she delivered both in and out of hospitals... My understanding is that only CNMs can practice in hospitals, and there have not been any CNMs in Ohio in recent history who attend(ed) planned homebirths. Is that correct?
Any information is greatly appreciated!
Whoever this woman is, I hope she knows that I'm going to be hearing about the "dangers" of birth, quoted from a "reliable source" for the next thirty years because of her...
