In Maine, the birth professionals who mainly serve women at homebirths are Certifed Professional Midwives (CPMs).

Certified Professional Midwives are direct-entry midwives educated and trained through both apprenticeship and institution-based models and are certified nationally by the North American Registry of Midwives.

Maine has 24 Certified Professional Midwives with practices located in most regions of the state:  North, Central, South, Midcoast and Downeast.  Midwives may serve regions outside of where they are located.

Maine’s CPMs have two professional organizations:  Midwives of Maine (MOM) and Maine Association of Certified Professional Midwives (MACPM).

Maine’s CPMs are also active in national organizations such as the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA), the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM), the Midwifery Education and Accreditation Council (MEAC), as well as the MAMA Campaign.
