Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) - Yuba City

Midwifery

A certified nurse midwife is an advanced practice registered nurse who has had training in obstetrics and works under the supervision of an obstetrician. Some nurse midwives have their own private practice, but most work in hospitals, family planning centers, and public health services.

Midwifery is a health care profession in which Midwife providers offer low-risk pregnancy care to childbearing women during pregnancy, labour and birth, and during the postpartum period. They also care for the newborn and assist the mother with breastfeeding.

Mrs. Angela Kreider provided me with prenatal care during and after two pregnancies. She assisted me with dietary questions I had to have a healthier pregnancy. She is very knowlegable about natural remedies to ease certain discomforts during pregnancy, labor and after, as I prefer natural medicines over pharmaceuticals. She has so much patience and love, I always felt respected and I was never afraid of asking for help, no matter how insignificant my problem seemed to me. Having her on my side during labor made me feel safe and secure. She has so much positive energy, that even when I was down, she was able to help me right back up.

Different types of Midwives

There are two different types of midwives. One is the C.N.M. (Certified Nurse-Midwife). This generally requires becoming an RN (Registered Nurse) first, and then on to one of 47 schools in the U.S. that offer a nurse-midwifery program. A nurse-midwife usually practices in a hospital or birth center, and works with a back up physician. They have been shown to have a lower cesarean rate, low episiotomy rate, and better infant outcomes, such as higher birth weights and APGAR scores. Women can receive their non-pregnant well-woman care from their nurse-midwife and in most states they have the authority to prescribe medications, assist in cesarean sections. Although nurse-midwives value unmeditated birth, women can receive an epidural or pain medication during a hospital birth if they request it.

Midwife

A midwife is a person who, having been regularly admitted to a midwifery educational program that is duly recognized in the country in which it is located, has successfully completed the prescribed course of studies in midwifery and has acquired the requisite qualifications to be registered and/or legally licensed to practice midwifery.
