The practice of Midwifery is thousands of years old and still evolving. In the U.S. there are Licensed Midwives, Certified Nurse Midwives, Certified Midwives, Certified Professional Midwives, Direct Entry Midwives and Traditional Midwives. According to the Midwives Alliance of North America, slightly more than 10% of births in the U.S. are attended by midwives. Midwives may practice in private homes, clinics, birth centers, and hospitals, and in addition to maternity care they provide primary women’s health care.
