Midwifery Nursing Practice

Nurse-Midwife is a registered nurse with additional training as a midwife who delivers infants and provides prenatal and postpartum care, newborn care, and some routine care (such as gynecological exams) of women. Certified nurse-midwives or certified midwives are skilled health professionals who practice in a wide variety of clinical settings, diagnosing and treating patients as well as referring them to a specialist, if required.  Midwife nursing practice includes the Evidence based practice (EBP) which is the conscientious use of current best evidence in making decisions about patient care and treatment.
