The popular perception of a midwife is that of a woman who helps with natural births at home or in another non-institutional setting. But midwives do much more than attend births: they are health care professionals who help women throughout all stages of pregnancy, birth, and post-natal care, from gynecological exams to pharmaceutical prescriptions.

Midwives in Tennessee attend approximately 4,000 births each year, and are in great demand. Although some midwives attend home births, the majority are employed by hospitals and birth centers.

If you’re interested in midwifery and are still in high school or college, you’ll want to prepare for your advanced education with courses in biology, chemistry, psychology, and sociology. Regardless of your background, to become a midwife you’ll need specialized training from an accredited educational program. Midwife programs tend to include courses in areas like applied pharmacology, physiology, and postpartum infant care.

Most midwives in Tennessee have a master’s degree in nursing. There is only one accredited midwifery school in Tennessee so many opt to pursue online programs as an alternative.
