Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife

There is no other way to start this other than by saying:
I passed the NARM exam with a 90% on the first try, and I graduated from MCU! NARM gave me the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) designation. I applied for and was issued my midwifery license from the Medical Board of California on July 18, 2019!

It. Is. Finally. Done.

I can finally add these letters to the back of my name:
Marivette Torres, LM, CPM 

That’s it, folks, for this blog post. A quick update on my progress!!

A Guide to the Difference Between a Certified Professional, Licensed Midwife and a Certified Doula

Not every service that a CPM, LM offers was able to fit under the CPM section, so only the main topics were included. It’s not an exhaustive list but a starting point for families to understand some of the differences. The Spanish version is available here.
