Hello Diamond: To be a mid-wife, I looked up the information in Occupational Outlook Handbook and found the following information: "Nurse midwives (CNMs) provide care to women, including gynecological exams, family planning services, and prenatal care. They deliver babies; manage emergency situations during labor, such as hemorrhaging; repair lacerations; and may provide surgical assistance to physicians during cesarean births. Nurse midwives may act as primary care providers for women and newborns. They also provide wellness care, educating their patients on how to lead healthy lives by discussing topics such as nutrition and disease prevention. Nurse midwives also provide care to their patients’ partners for sexual or reproductive health issues." I hope this helps and for more information google Occupational Outlook Handbook 2018 for current pay that they receive and how much they are needed or in demand. Best wishes in all of your future endeavors!
