    I live in NJ and I was hoping someone could tell me if NJ state allows you to get your CPM through the PEP process or do you have to go through a MEAC accredited school? Thanks for your help!

    My name is Cait and I am 24. I attended 3+ years flip flopping majors from Sociology to Anthopology to Writing again and again. I then found out I was expecting and immediately started researching my birth options and what was truly best for myself and my child-- midwives! At home! Love! Why...

    I was wondering if anyone could explain to me the difference between a Canadian, and an USA midwife? Do the USA midwifes carry malpractice insurance?

    Hello! i am just beginning training as a doula, and I plan on gradually expanding my practice/ education/ training as my experience grows. Becoming a CPM is one of the possibilities, so I have been doing some research. I would most likely have to do distance training/distance hybrid, with local...

    This is my first post here and I will admit I'm a bit nervous. I am currently an undergrad working on a BSN. The ultimate goal was a Master's in Midwifery. Then the other day, the idea occurred to me that I could just skip the whole CNM route and do a direct-entry route for a CPM. The reason...

    I feel like I should first introduce myself. Hi all, I am a college freshman and I am utterly certain that being a midwife is my calling. I'm not sure how to write this without sounding like some kid who is just fantasized with the idea; however, it is something I have done so much research...

    My longterm goal is to become a midwife. I think CNM is the best choice, although will take longer achieve. I am currently starting doula training so I can get my feet wet and be involved. Any advice would be very much appreciated in this decision-making process!

    I live in texas and am looking to become a midwife, and association of Texas midwives seems like the best choice, however it sais that most of the classes are online, with a little class time. My issue with this is it is very non specific, it does not tell me where classes would be held, if i...

    Hi everyone I live in St Clair County. I am looking for a CNM or CPM. I do not want a hospital birth and I am still iffy on home births... I would really love to find a birthing center. I have gotten some great information on The Farm in Tennessee but from where I am that's a 3.5 hour drive...

    I want to become a midwife. My questions for you all are these: I've heard talk of CPM's being outlawed in the future, especially those who do not have a degree or have not gone to a MEAC school.; Is there any possible truth to this? I know it is state by state, but where does the trend seem to...

    Wow. This came from a friend of mine (who I don't see that often) who is a nurse and is aspiring to be a CNM, right after I asked her what made her want to be a CNM instead of a CPM/DEM. I laughed when she said this, thinking she was joking, and then asked her what she meant. She went on to say...
