The role of the certified nurse midwife is to assist in the pregnancy of a woman with a low-risk health profile. In some cases the certified nurse midwife will continue to provide care in the labor and delivery and postpartum phases as well. The certified nurse midwife is in charge of monitoring the health of both the pregnant mother and the un-born child. Nurse midwives frequently work in collaboration with physicians and other specialty nurses, such as obstetricians and gynecologists. A fully qualified nurse midwife will also have the ability to safely deliver a baby. Furthermore the certified nurse midwife should be knowledgeable on topics such as how to feed the newborn baby and how to care for the baby.
