Baby Chord Cutting At Home

Qualifications

I am a Licensed Midwife (LM) in the state of Arizona.  The state of Nevada does not currently regulate direct entry midwives.  While this affords families in Nevada many options for who they would like to attend them in birth, in anticipation of this possibly changing in the span of my career, I have chosen to become credentialed through the North American Registry of Midwives as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).  I have also received my Bridge Certificate.
