New Hampshire Midwifery Council

Welcome to the New Hampshire Midwifery Council.

Council Focus

The principal focus of regulating the practice of midwifery is to preserve the rights of women to choose to deliver children at home by removing obstacles to safe out-of-hospital deliveries and assuring quality care.  Midwifery has been part of the culture and tradition in New Hampshire since colonial days.  For personal and economic reasons some healthy pregnant women in New Hampshire will choose home birth and engage the services of a certified midwife.

To protect the health, safety and welfare of the people of the State of New Hampshire, the NH Midwifery Council was established to certify eligible applicants for certification, establish fees for examination of applicants, investigate complaints and undertake disciplinary proceedings and disciplinary action.

The Midwifery Council meets four times a year.
