Nurse midwives function as primary healthcare providers for women and most often provide medical care for relatively healthy women, whose births are considered uncomplicated and not “high risk,” as well as their neonates. Often, women with high-risk pregnancies can receive the benefits of midwifery care from a nurse-midwife in collaboration with a physician. Nurse-midwives may work closely or in collaboration, with an obstetrician & gynecologist, who provides consultation and/or assistance to patients who develop complications or have complex medical histories or disease(s).
Nurse-midwives practice in hospitals and private practice medical clinics and may also deliver babies in birthing centers and attend at-home births. Some work with academic institutions as professors. They are able to prescribe some medications, treatments, medical devices, therapeutic and diagnostic measures.
