I'm wondering what other jobs are CPM's able to can get besides a home birth practice? i've noticed that some overseas aide organizations hire CPM's...what about here in the US?

CPMs in my area who aren't currently working as midwives seem to gravitate toward women's health eduation/counseling. I know of several who have worked for Planned Parenthood in that area. One friend got a job as a nighttime staffer at a home for teenaged girls. I have seen a few go back for school for degrees in public health.<br><br>
There are lots of independent business-y things that can be done in addition to midwifery with a CPM. I opened a small midwifery school. Others do birth or postpartum doula work.

Could also do childbirth education classes, newborn classes, nutritional counseling for pregnant moms, breastfeeding consultant ... there's probably a bunch more depending on the training and expertise of the midwife
