I'm strongly considering becoming one but I'm a little turned off by the idea of being the odd man out in an OB practice. You can do a solo practice in my state but CNM are paid less then doctors so you by yourself have to keep the lights on,buy the supplies AND pay malpractice insurance on top of all that. There's some incentive from the state if you become a WHNP/CNM because my state is in a crisis for PCPs.
I was wondering if you've had a delivery with a CNM or have women's health received services from one? Experiences? Hospital,birth center or home if it was a delivery?
Would it interest you if a provider offered out of hospital birth in some cases?
I'm still on the fence just a bit about becoming a midwife but if people really enjoy having a CNM or see one regularly it honestly might help me bite the bullet and feel better about the decision.
