Deb Logan, CNM, MSN, (Certified Nurse-Midwife) joined Memorial Physician Services in early August. On Aug. 10, she welcomed her first Hopkins County Memorial Hospital baby, a beautiful baby boy, into his mother’s waiting arms.

Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNM) provide care to females from their first menstrual cycle to menopause and beyond, including pre-conceptual counseling, family planning/contraception, care during pregnancy and childbirth, lactation support, annual exams, pap smears, breast exams and care of the peri- and post-menopausal woman.

Women are encouraged to make informed decisions about their health care and nurse- midwives believe the family should have a voice in selecting the site of healthy birthing. Today’s CNM, a professional health care provider, is a registered nurse who has graduated from one of the more than 30 advanced education programs accredited by the American College of Nurse-Midwives, passed a national certification examination and met strict requirements set by state health agencies. They practice in hospitals, birth centers, health maintenance organizations, group medical practices, private offices, clinics and public health departments. Medical journal articles, government studies and health care organizations continue to recognize and endorse the services provided by CNMs. There are more than 5000 CNMs in practice today in all 50 states.
