Massachusetts Midwife Salary

According to SalaryExpert.com, the average direct-entry midwife salary in Massachusetts is $36,776. Per indeed.com, the average salary for a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) in Massachusetts is $120,000 and for a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) the salary is $105,000. It is clear that the higher pay earned by CNMs reflects the extra training as a Registered Nurse that they must possess prior to entering midwifery programs.
