About New Jersey ACNM Members

Our caring, certified-nurse midwives provide treatment in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We have deep roots in the community and care for our patients throughout their childbearing years and beyond.

Our principal goal is to develop an ongoing trusted relationship with our patients.

Our History

Midwives have been a core base for reliable and responsible women's healthcare for centuries. However, in our modern culture many have misunderstood our mission and practice.

New Jersey CNMs have had prescriptive authority since 1993. Third-party reimbursement for CNMs is mandated in New Jersey. In 2002 New Jersey CNMs attended approximately 6.8% of the total births in New Jersey for that year, and the number of births attended by CNMs and the number of CNMs in New Jersey has been increasing each year since then.

Our Philosophy

We, the midwives of the New Jersey Affiliate of the American College of Nurse-Midwives, affirm the power and strength of women and the importance of their health in the well-being of families, communities and nations.

We believe in the basic human rights of all persons, recognizing that women often incur an undue burden of risk when these rights are violated.

Our Patients

Midwives feel it is very important to be completely attentive to patients’ needs.We have found that women like the feeling of being able to come back to the same medical practice for care instead of being referred elsewhere no matter what phase of life they are in.

We have found that the best way to tell our story is from the perspective of our patients. Over the years we have collected many positive testimonials. Tune in soon to hear some of your Client Birth Stories. Click below to hear testimonials and birth stories from patients from all over New Jersey.
