    CNM vs CPM pros/cons?

    Hi there! I am  a doula serving families in Richmond, VA and surrounding areas. I am looking into moving forward towards becoming a midwife and would like to hear other's opinions on the subject above. I am truly on the fence with which avenue to take, therefore I seek some professional input. Thank you in advance!!

    I am going the CPM route right now because in my final state, it's not required to be a CNM to practice. However, once I'm established, I do plan on switching to the CNM route so I can do a bit more. I think the big decision for me was on if I wanted to go to nursing school first then midwifery school... and I just don't have that kind of time or money right now.
