Georgia



Unlawful, because certification that is required by state law is not available.

The practice of midwifery by direct-entry midwives is effectively unlawful, because certification by the Department of Human Resources, required by law, is unavailable.

While quite a few certified nurse midwives practice in Georgia, most are in hospital settings and none attend home births. There is one free-standing birth center, which is staffed by CNMs.

Midwifery advocates continue efforts to achieve legislation that would make direct entry midwives legal by recognizing the Certified Professional Midwife credential.
