Career Placement / Employment
Because of the current nature of Direct Entry Midwifery in the US, most midwives are self-employed entrepreneurs. Ready-made jobs are often not available for midwives and relocation may be necessary in some cases.
NCM does not provide job placement but does provide support for graduates seeking direction and assistance in starting their own small business or is happy to help students connect with birth centers and practices seeking new partners through our Bulletin Board
NCM provides the following links for graduates seeking support in starting and managing a business:
