The History of Midwifery


The term “midwife” comes from the Old English phrase meaning “with woman.”

Midwifery in the U.S. began with a woman named Mary Breckenridge, who was determined to provide health care to people living in the remote Appalachian Mountain region. While on a trip to Europe, she was so impressed with the skill and care European nurse-midwives provided their patients that she brought several British nurse-midwives to America and established the Frontier Nursing Service.

CNMs are trained as both nurses and midwives. Our Nurse Midwives are licensed to practice by the state after completing a 3 to 4 year bachelor level degree in nursing or midwifery, and passing a national certification exam from the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM).

The main function of a midwife is to provide support and care to women during Labor and Delivery. However, midwives today don’t just attend births; Promised Land Women’s Center midwives also offer many types of gynecologic care such as:
