Midwifery School in Arizona - AZ

A midwife in Arizona is involved with the process of childbirth from conception to birth--and afterwards for follow-up care. A midwife in Arizona is a trained and skilled professional, however they are not doctors. The practice of Midwifery offers care to a woman who is in her childbearing years. Midwives also care for newborns. As such, training will cover many aspects of general health including prenatal and pediatric practices. Arizona has two categories of midwives who are allowed to deliver a baby: the licensed midwife and the certified nurse/midwife.

A typical nurse/midwife educational program will consist of core classes that teach medical practices and procedures that are both general health focused, and specific to childbirth and gynecology. Midwifery courses in Arizona are available from different educational institutions in cities such as Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa and Glendale. Considering other degree programs, like those offered by online nursing schools, will increase your options.

Most programs will take up to five years, especially if you seek to become a certified nurse/midwife. The clinic portion of the program is likely to total more than 1300 hours where you will be required to offer prenatal care, attend several births, and complete follow-up visits with both the mother and the newborn.
