My midwife was a CPM. All the CNM's I found would only deliver in the hospital and didn't have a backing doctor for VBAC's.

I have two midwives, one is a CNM and the other is a CM. Both were present at my last birth... however if I go over 41 weeks this time, only the CM will be there for my birth. The CNM is planning on attending a conference in DC that starts on June 11. I'm due June 5.

My midwives are both CPMs and LMs (licensed midwives). All of the CNMs here deliver at the hospitals only. Lily was delivered by a CNM at the hospital.

Mine is a CNM. Almost all the CNMs here only do hospital births. Because of my history of hemorrhaging I was so relieved to find one that did homebirths. The CPM I contacted wouldn't see me because of my history and for me I think a CNM would be the only way I could do a homebirth. I had once considered an UC, but I am such a bad bleeder that I don't think I am a good candidate for it.

The only homebirth midwife here is a CNM, strangely enough, so that's who we're going with. Luckily she's awesome! My first home birth was with a CPM, and honestly, I can't really tell a difference in the way they do things...

I think mine is an LM. My past four births were with CNMs in hospitals.

I have one in mind who is a CNM. I haven't done a lot of checking into specific people yet.

Mine was a CNM, the same one for both kids however I did a homebirth with Nola. The only other option is a lay midwife that was a candidate for my last birth but I didn't mesh well with her techniques. I'm not sure what I'm doing for the next child... I have no clue what to do.

Mine is a TM- Traditional Midwife. She has the same CPM training, and I believe use to be a nurse. But she perfers TM as she is into holistic care.
