About Midwifery

What is a Certified Nurse Midwife?

"Certified nurse midwives provide independent midwifery care within their scope of practice fostering consultation, collaborative management, or seamless referral and transfer of when indicated." ACNM, 2009

Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) are advanced practice registered nurses who have additional training in both nursing and midwifery. CNMs are certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) and must be formally educated in midwifery through an accredited program affiliated with an institution of higher learning, demonstrate clinical competence, and pass a rigorous national certifying exam.

Certified Nurse Midwives are unique health care professionals that are trained to have a wide range of responsibilities from primary health care services for women starting at adolescence and beyond menopause. MOGA Midwives specialize in a safe and caring approach to your birthing experience including family planning services, pre-conception care, prenatal, delivery and postpartum care. CNMs also provide an array of services to women including annual well-women exams and menopausal management. MOGA midwives attend births in the comfort of Banner University Medical Center Phoenix.
