Nursing and Midwifery

Nurse midwifes serve as a primary healthcare providers for women and most often provide medical care for relatively healthy women, whose health and births are considered uncomplicated rather than high risk, as well as their neonates. A Women with high risk during pregnancies can often receive the benefits of midwifery care from a nurse in collaboration with a physician. The nurse midwife can work closely or in collaboration with an obstetrician & gynecologist.


A midwife is trained to help the pregnant women to deliver their babies. Midwives have been around for centuries, though it requires a formal training for midwives is relatively recent. A certified midwife (CM) typically receives a license to practice the midwifery. A lay midwife performs the duties of a CM but he/she is not formally licensed for any medical emergency. Now a Days, they can get, a certified professional midwife (CPM) which is certified by the North American Registry of Midwives. All midwives help the women during labor and delivery time. If the patient requires further medical attention, they must go to a hospital, since a midwife does not have professional medical training to handle such cases.


A nurse, on the other hand, can work in a wide variety of medical specialties/situations not just for labor and delivery time. A labor and delivery nurse works in the same medical field as those of midwife; however, a nurse can only assist the obstetrician/gynecologists. A nurse is not authorized to perform the entire delivery, except in emergency situations in presence of gynecologists/obstetrics.
