State certified CPMs may practice in Tennessee.

A law was passed in July 2000 regulating the practice of direct entry midwifery. Midwives are required to pass the CPM exam, and apply to the state for certification.

Tennessee Midwives Association

TMA is an organization of direct-entry midwives, certified nurse midwives, childbirth educators, doulas, and aspiring midwives.

In addition to quarterly meetings, TMA offers continuing education workshops, peer review, and produces its own newsletter, "The TMA Quarterly."
