As a CNM, I would say salary varies greatly and depends on many factors: Hospital work pays more than out of hospital. Groups usually pay better than solo practitioners. And where you live is a huge determinate. I know of homebirth CNMs who make less than Birth Center or hospital midwives here in town. I would say the range here is 60-95k, however I have made 100k+ at a previous job in this area.

  • You need to research the area you either live in or plan to live in: that will give you better info than getting answers from different areas of the country that may not be applicable to you.
