For women who view pregnancy and childbirth as natural processes, yet cannot or don't wish to give birth at home for whatever reason, nurse midwives are a great option. Certified nurse midwives (CNMs) are registered nurses with advanced training in midwifery. They usually assist in hospital or birthing center births, and have physician backup in case it is needed.
