How to Become a Midwife

Thank you for your interest in direct-entry (non-nurse) midwifery education. Please see our list of accredited schools for information on an individual school. If you choose distance education, you will need to find a licensed or certified midwife to act as your preceptor as part of the clinical experience in these programs.

Your state midwifery organization or board of health can be a good place to start if you are trying to find midwives in your area who are interested in apprenticeship. You can also consult MANA (Midwives Alliance of North America) at This site can answer many of your questions and provides links to other midwifery organizations which may include listings of practicing midwives in your state. You may also wish to consult Citizens for Midwifery at for specific information on the status of, and laws pertaining to, midwifery for various states.

Another great resource on becoming a midwife is a book called "Paths To Becoming A Midwife: Getting An Education". This book contains a lot of good information from various sources and can help you determine your own path to becoming a midwife. Please go to for more information.
