Nurse midwives provide primary care to women, including gynecological exams, family planning advice, prenatal care, assistance in labor and delivery, and neonatal care. CNMs work in hospitals, clinics, health departments, homes and private practices. Midwives will often have to work unpredictable hours (due to the unpredictable nature of childbirth). They should have good communications skills should be willing to commit to a holistic approach to patient care.

    This has been a passion of mine since I had children. Does anyone who is currently or previously a nurse midwife has any advice for all of us who want to go in this direction?

    this has been my dream job since i've had my daughter 4 years ago. Giving birth was the most wonderful experience of my life. What better job to do than to help bring life into this world. I've wanted to do nursing since i was a teenager.
