This is the official website for members of the West Virginia Affiliate of the American College of Nurse Midwives!

 

 

We have definitely grown in number through the years! According to the 1870 census, there were 11 practicing midwives. With the addition of "granny midwives" into the midwifery category in the 1920's, midwives attended more than 8% of West Virginia's births. There are now more than 60 midwives in WV and counting!!
