How can you get a midwife if you can't get a doctor?
I am not sure why you "can't" have a Physician, but if you would prefer to have a midwife attend your birth, there are many ways to find one. There are essentially 2 types of midwives. One, is a Certified Nurse Midwife, and the other is a Licensed, Certified, or Direct-Entry Midwife. A Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), is one who is a Registered Nurse Practitioner and has had specialized training in women's health and pregnancy. It is most common to have a CNM if you will be having a hospital birth. Some CNM's do, however attend homebirths. If you are in the United States, you can find a CNM via this website: http://www.acnm.org/ You may also opt to have a Direct-Entry midwife, a person who has had specialized training in pregnancy and birth through various methods such as private midwifery school and/or rigorous apprenticeship programs and are state licensed and/or nationally certified. Licensed Midwives most commonly attend homebirths. If you are in the United States or Canada, you can find Midwives and other birth professionals at www.birthpartners.com. Most states also have their own Midwifery chapters where you can find Midwives.

Someone who looks after the baby and mother 'till they leave hospital. They help to deliver a baby. A midwife can also be a man despite the name! If there were no complication…s during pregnancy and none are expected in the birth process, a midwife can perform all necessary tasks. This is often the case when women choose to give birth at home or somewhere else not in a hospital. It is considered to be a more natural way to give birth. Since women do not need to give birth in hospitals, midwives may also attend births in birth centers or at the family's home. The ATTEND the birth, but do not deliver. Only a mama can deliver her baby! Midwives attend normal, healthy births, and are trained to recognize complications during pregnancy so that they can refer the mother to an obstetrician, a surgeon specializing in pregnancy and birth, or during the birth to transfer care to a hospital or an OB. A person who serves as an attendant at childbirth but is not a physician. Some midwives (called certified nurse midwives) are trained in university programs, which usually require previous education in nursing; others (called lay midwives) learn their skills through apprenticeship a midwife is a person that helps you and your kids
The only way to become a doctor is through medical school, although you may be able to get other qualifications through lesser programs.

It is not there and that means its a false pregenancy . Either you loss the baby or the body thinks it is pregnant but it is not .
A midwife is simply a nurse that extends her education to being a CNM which is a Certified Nurse Midwife. AN Obstetrician is an actual doctor which has more training. This doe…s not mean than an OB is more qualified than a midwife though. A lot of women who prefer a more relaxed birthing method (water birht, at-home birth etc) may prefer a midwife over an OB. This is simply because a OB usually delivers babies at a hospital so if a complication does present iteself during birth, you are already there at a hospital. If you use a midwife, they may have to call an OB, or an ambulance to bring you to a hosptial which might have more technology/equipment readily available if risks are presented. Women who are at high-rish or who have had a miscarriage before are not recommended to have a midwife, or if they do, to at least have their midwife help them deliver at a local rea hosptital.
if you mean " what can a nurse do that a doctor can't": the holistic support of your patient, being supportive and compassionate during a difficult/stressful time such as du…ring a procedure or listening to your patient tell you their difficult life story and being understanding and sitting next to them and holding their hand and telling them that "we will get through this and that it is possible". "being there" for you patient after the doctor leaves the room after painful diagnosis and being available to family members 24/7 to help explain/teach and help understand something that an MD just said.
A midwife is someone who is trained to assist in childbirth. Thomas Paine is sometimes said to have been midwife to the United States, but this is not meant literall…y. Thomas Paine was a writer around the time of the Revolutionary War in the US. He wrote widely circulated pamphlets arguing for Independence. In this way he was very influential to the "birth" of the United States.
about 40% of people can not afford to have a consultation with their doctor in the United States of America!
A certified midwife is not a doctor, but a person who has undergone training and met educational requirements to care for a mom-to-be, and the newborn. There is a requirement …for birth attendance and supervised deliveries. Then the certificate and independence.
During the doctor visit, the female will have a complete physicalthat includes blood tests and a pelvic exam.
Usually you can see a condom in the vagina without difficulty after inserting a speculum. It's also a simple matter to feel for the condom using gloved fingers. If the condom …can't be seen during a speculum exam, it's not in the vagina.
For the same reasons that people in the US can't afford doctors... Many people can, but many people can't because of socioeconomic reasons.... ie, they don't make enough money… to pay for some of these services. Not all Kenyans are destitute.
Because he's hundreds of years older than she is and she's trapped in a parallel universe.

If the doctor can't find Mirena on ultrasound, you must assume that it fell out without your noticing. I know that's hard to believe, but it happens. You should choose a new m…ethod of birth control. You can get a new Mirena if you like.
You use baby powder just a little bit and spread it around on the rash. Or If you don't have baby powder use alcohol. Worked for me!
It is preferable for Muslim females to be examined by a female Doctor. However, if no female Doctor is available one can be seen by a male Doctor. The idea is based in modesty…; a man should not see the private regions of a woman with whom he is not married.
