Find a Nurse-Midwife
This Nurse-Midwife locator will help you find practices with one or more American College of Nurse-Midwife members which can be Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) or Certified Midwives (CMs). CMs are formally educated midwives but are not nurses. CNMs can practice legally in all 50 states but it unfortunate that physician organizations commonly influence state laws and hospital regulations to limit their availability. Physicians may attempt to limit your access to CNMs and CMs to protect their own interests, not yours.

Mothers Naturally provides these names to help you locate a midwife in your area. The midwives listed here are members of the Midwives Alliance of North America who choose to release their names for referral. Awakening Birth Now, Mothers Naturally and MANA do not evaluate, rate, credential, oversee, or monitor the midwives on this list and make no representation regarding the practice of any of the midwives listed and are not responsible for the practice of such midwives. Mothers Naturally urges all parents to take responsibility for their birth experience by informing themselves regarding the competency of local practitioners. This can be done by asking questions, obtaining local references, and learning what quality midwifery care entails through reading and discussion with other parents and care providers.
