1. All three of my girls’ births were attended by midwives. The last one by a CPM at home and the first two by CNMs in a hospital. They are all midwives, but there was even a difference in the care I received by the CPM vs the CNMs. My shortest “office” visit with the CPM was 30min…longest 2hrs! My longest visit with CNMs was 15min. Unfortunately, many CNMs succumbing to the Medical Model. Working as a L&D nurse I get to witness both models. Both have there place, but most patients assume the doctor knows best!

  2. You are so right. My midwife attended hospital birth was very different from my midwife attended hospital births. I think that’s because the midwives in the hospital are under the OB’s.
