Answer . \nI am not sure why you "can't" have a Physician, but if you would prefer to have a midwife attend your birth, there are many ways to find one. There are essentia…lly 2 types of midwives. One, is a Certified Nurse Midwife, and the other is a Licensed, Certified, or Direct-Entry Midwife. A Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), is one who is a Registered Nurse Practitioner and has had specialized training in women's health and pregnancy. It is most common to have a CNM if you will be having a hospital birth. Some CNM's do, however attend homebirths. If you are in the United States, you can find a CNM via this website: http://www.acnm.org/\n. \nYou may also opt to have a Direct-Entry midwife, a person who has had specialized training in pregnancy and birth through various methods such as private midwifery school and/or rigorous apprenticeship programs and are state licensed and/or nationally certified. Licensed Midwives most commonly attend homebirths. If you are in the United States or Canada, you can find Midwives and other birth professionals at www.birthpartners.com. Most states also have their own Midwifery chapters where you can find Midwives.
To become a CNM, otherwise known as a certified nurse midwife, one must earn an undergraduate degree in nursing (RN/BSN). After you complete your RN degree you must complete a… mandatory one year of nursing experience before appling for a midwifery master's degree program. Some excellent programs are NYU, Columbia, and Yale. Upon completion of the midwifery master's program you are now a Certified Nurse Midwife! Well done and congratulations!
Because it is an amazing thing to see a baby born into new life. Anwser . I am a mid wife and i enjoy every second of it . Just giving life and seeing people faces. But th…ere is also said time I would recommend this to any one even if the money is not that great.
You will need a minimum of 5 GCSE's at grade C and above (to include Maths, English and a Science) as well as 2 A level equivalents (recommend human biology, sociology, psycho…logy or health and social care for one of these) . However as competition for places among universities varies you will find many universities have more stringent criteria - I would phone your chosen universities to obtain the entry requirements. A midwife is normally the main contact during pregnancy as well as providing a pivotal role at birth and for postnatal care. By providing invaluable information, the Midwife will assist the expectant mother in making choices regarding the options and services that are available. A midwife's responsibilities and roles are wide ranging. A midwife undertakes clinical examinations, provides health information and is key in supporting the mother all the way through the pregnancy. Midwives carry out their work in a variety of health care settings. If they are based in a large hospital, they will work in the maternity unit. Other settings include dedicated birth centres, group practices and private maternity hospitals. The NHS employs the majority of midwives who practice in the UK. These midwives generally work in teams. An ever increasing number of midwives choose to work independently. Midwives generally work in teams and this requires them to work in shifts. So be prepared to work in day and night shifts. You may be also required to travel from hospital to hospital, be on-call and travel around the community to the new mother's residence. Your pay as a midwife as well as your working conditions is set by the NHS. As a newly qualified midwife your salary starts at just over Â£19,000 per annum. In addition, if you are on-call or working unsocial hours you can expect to earn more. An experienced midwife has the opportunity to earn in excess of Â£59,000. so good luck in the future guys & try your hardest!
It varies for different universities, but for most you need at least 5 GCSE grades at A*-C including maths, English language and a science. However, you will also need A Level…s or A Level equivalents
The requirements for a midwife vary greatly from state to state. I suggest you check with your state's department of health to find out the requirements for your state.
A midwife is simply a nurse that extends her education to being a CNM which is a Certified Nurse Midwife. AN Obstetrician is an actual doctor which has more training. This doe…s not mean than an OB is more qualified than a midwife though. A lot of women who prefer a more relaxed birthing method (water birht, at-home birth etc) may prefer a midwife over an OB. This is simply because a OB usually delivers babies at a hospital so if a complication does present iteself during birth, you are already there at a hospital. If you use a midwife, they may have to call an OB, or an ambulance to bring you to a hosptial which might have more technology/equipment readily available if risks are presented. Women who are at high-rish or who have had a miscarriage before are not recommended to have a midwife, or if they do, to at least have their midwife help them deliver at a local rea hosptital.
Yes. A midwife degree is a concentration after the completion of the RN (registered nurse). In the US, it typically takes 2.5 years to obtain the initial degree. The midwife c…lassification can take 2-3 years of additional study.

In the UK you have to do a 3 year degree in midwifery of a 3 year nursing degree and then do an 18 month conversion to midwifery degree.
A certified midwife is not a doctor, but a person who has undergone training and met educational requirements to care for a mom-to-be, and the newborn. There is a requirement …for birth attendance and supervised deliveries. Then the certificate and independence.
In order to become a midwife, a person needs to complete a graduate degree and take midwife training. It is also a good idea to volunteer with other midwives to gain experien…ce.
