Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Certified nurse-midwives who attend births at home have special responsibilities and need to maintain certain skills that are designed to promote neonatal well-being. These include careful screening prior to and during labor to be sure that only the lowest risk women attempt home birth, resuscitation skills more polished than those required in hospital settings, and a high degree of skill in evaluation of the newborn following birth.
