What is a Midwife?

A Florida Licensed Midwife is a direct-entry, Certified Professional Midwife who has completed a three-year midwifery education program and passed the North American Registry of Midwives national exam. Licensed Midwives are certified in CPR, neonatal resuscitation, administration of routine antibiotics and antihemorrhagics, and evaluating routine vital signs.
