Welcome to the web site for the Alaska
Affiliate of the American College of Nurse-Midwives!

Certified Nurse-Midwives practice throughout the state of Alaska in many different settings.  We hope this web site will help you learn more about Certified Nurse-Midwives and help you find an Alaskan CNM for your needs.

Choosing a healthcare provider is one of the most important decisions you can make. You want someone who is caring, knowledgeable, and accessible. Someone willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you as a person, not just a patient. 

You may not realize it, but Certified Nurse-Midwives provide care for women throughout their lifespan, from puberty through menopause.

Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) are licensed healthcare practitioners educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery and are certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board.  We provide primary healthcare to women of childbearing age including:  prenatal care, labor and delivery care, care after birth, gynecological exams, newborn care, assistance with family planning decisions, preconception care, menopausal management and counseling in health maintenance and disease prevention.  CNMs attend almost 14% of all births in Alaska.  We are licensed as Advanced Nurse Practitioners and have full prescriptive authority (able to prescribe any medication necessary).
