Lisette D. Zermeno, CNM
CNMs are licensed, independent health care providers with prescriptive authority. CNMs are educated in two disciplines: midwifery and nursing. CNMs are Registered Nurses and Board Certified Providers with the American Midwifery Certification Board. Midwifery encompasses a full range of primary health care services for women from adolescence beyond Menopause.
The midwifery model of care places value on centering the client, careful monitoring, avoiding unnecessary intervention, informed consent, and cultivating respectful, non-judgmental client-provider spaces.
