There are a few different routes to become a Certified Professional Midwife and attend home births. I am doing a self-study, apprenticing under a midwife for a few years while she trains me, and after I have proven myself ready, I will sit for the NARM exam in order to receive my certification. Sometimes it's difficult to take this route because you have to find a willing midwife and you have to be VERY self-motivated. I thought it was going to take me a couple of years to get a position. The midwife I wanted to work with already had two students, and that's usually the most a midwife will take on. I was fortunate that another student stepped down early and a position opened up with the midwife that I always dreamed to work with. It's like a dream come true. I'm so excited to see what the next few years bring!
