 CNM Supervision

I'm collecting information on the maximum number of CNM's to be supervised
by a single obstetrician in both urban and rural settings.  If you know of
any established guidelines for this subject that would be helpful.. Of
course, personal opinions , with reason, from experienced clinicians will
also be useful.

Thanks.

I don't know that "supervise" is the best word to use, at least in my
state.  In Montana, a CNM is an independent provider.  Collaborative
relationship might be a better term to describe the relationship between
the CNM and MD.   As far as how many CNM's an MD might want to collaborate
with - if all are working in the same facility and taking call in turn, it
shouldn't matter.  If in different facilities, then wouldn't make sense to
try and be two places at once if the CNM's  need assistance in two places
simultaneously (unlikely but meconium happens).

I'm curious about what you plan to do with your information.

get into midwifery?  I've been a licenced practical nurse here in Alberta
Canada for about five years and I just convicated with my B.Sc. in
Biochemistry.  I have been trying to get into medical school, with no
avail.   But I realy am interested in exploring midwifery as an
alternative.   Does anyone know what the most practical education route for
me would be?

Are most midwifes CNM?  I thought there were several varrieties.  What are
the law's regarding midwives in the US?

    "Supervise" is *definitely* the word here in California.  The laws for
CNMs and DEMs both state that the midwife works "under the supervision" of
a physician.  We dream of being recognized as independent providers.

    Actually, we do more than dream, we're trying to change the language
of the laws.  Our bill got killed last year, but we'll be back!

Ditto for Michigan.  Our CNM group contracts w/ an OB/GYN group to be our
consultants -- together we decide on parameters for when we collaborate or
refer clients to the OB's.  They provide hospital care such as C-sections
or management of abnormal conditions.  By the way, the CNM's have
independent admitting privileges restricted to term, "normal" women.
