A nurse midwife is an advanced practice registered nurse who has had training in obstetrics and works in collaboration with a supervising obstetrician. Midwives can evaluate and treat women’s health conditions, conduct pelvic exams, breast exams and Pap smears, in addition to many other women’s health concerns. Labor and childbirth of a healthy woman is one of the many focus areas within midwifery care.
