What qualifications does a midwife need?

Is there a test to take or can anyone be a midwife?

To become a certified midwife, formal training including tests and classes is usually required. Without the proper licensing, it is usually illegal to operate as a midwife.

Midwifery is a specialty field of study undertaken (in most cases) by a Registered Nurse. There are a number of Midwifery schools in the U. S. Each state has specific requirements regarding qualifications to become a midwife, education required and licensing stipulations. The education is demanding, as is the profession, and requires a great deal of responsibility (and liability).

A midwife completes at least one year and then 1350 hours under the direction of a supervising midwife. After that you must prepare for and complete the North American Registry of Midwives skills test.
