What Kind of a Midwife Are You?
I am a certified professional midwife and a licensed midwife. (CPM, LM.) This means that i attended an accredited institution (Birthingway College of Midwifery) that trained me specifically to safely attend out-of-hospital births and to recognize early when a transfer of care is needed. It’s a different way of thinking about birth than when in-hospital providers have an operating room 30 seconds down the hall. I am licensed by the California Medical Board to practice autonomously in California and to carry anti-hemorrhagic medications, IV fluids, resuscitation equipment, oxygen, suturing materials and Lidocaine, and routine newborn medications .
