Welcome to the Delaware Nurse Midwives Website
The members of the Delaware State
Affiliate of the American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM) would like to
welcome you to our website. Our goal is to promote Nurse Midwifery
in Delaware and to support, educate, and empower women during pregnancy,
birth, and throughout their lifespan.
Although Delaware is a small state, there is a diverse population of women and families who live here. No matter what stage of life you are
in, consider seeking out a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) for your
women's health and pregnancy/birth care needs.
Midwives believe healthy mothers are more likely to have healthy
babies and happy families. We believe that a healthy lifestyle means
taking care of yourself, not just during pregnancy and birth but
throughout your life. CNMs are committed to providing quality health
care for women of all ages. Choosing a Nurse Midwife as your women's health
care provider means you can receive adolescent care, gynecological care,
pregnancy/birth care, and midlife care, all from the same place, with
someone you trust.
