Inspiration and resources for pregnancy and birth.
I believe all women have the right to feel safe, beautiful and loved at all times, but especially during pregnancy and birth, when their feminine power is perhaps most tangible.

(Cont’d) CPM: Certified professional midwives. These midwives are regulated by the state. They do not have nurse training and are not considered medical professionals. They are certified to attend home births and a few work in hospitals but it’s not common. Often they are outlawed. A CPM is actually considered a “lay” midwife in the USA. (Cont’d)
Cont’d DEM: Direct entry midwives usually have the same training as a CPM (formalized training and apprenticeship). The primary difference is that they refuse to be certified. Often this is so that they can work in states were midwifery is illegal underground, or to circumvent the legal restrictions on the CPM/CNM. Usually this is because they believe that women should have a right to choose where to birth without legal restriction. Some states outlaw DEM, some do not. (End)
Finally I see the whole thing clearly! Thank you so much for this!
