Exciting things are happening in South Carolina! We are sponsoring the TriState Conference in Hilton Head this year in September! Click on the Tristate Conference tab to review the brochure and register. Hope to see you all there!
We are an organization of Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs), and an Affiliate of The American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM). This site is dedicated to the women of South Carolina. Our purpose is to educate health care consumers about nurse midwives and the care offered to women across a lifetime. Anyone would agree that our health care system requires reform. As a country, the US spends more per person on health care than any other nation. In spite of the technology and expense, more than 20 other countries have healthier mothers and babies. In those countries, nurse midwives are the primary providers of care. Numerous studies support midwifery care for women and babies. Mothers are the health care managers for their families. Be part of the solution to our health care crisis. Learn how you and your baby can benefit from midwifery care before, during, and after your pregnancy. Midwives are with women for a lifetime.
CNMs AT A GLANCE
CNMs practice in over 60 locations throughout the state. Some are employed by hospitals. Others work for physicians in private practice. CNMs can be found in health departments, family planning clinics, and university health departments. CNMs teach in many university nursing programs. CNMs attend births in hospitals and birth centers. It is legal for them to attend births at homes as well..
