All Midwifery

CNMs (Certified Nurse-Midwives), meaning those who qualified as midwives after earning a nursing degree, earn an average of $113,000 per year. Unlike in many other countries, employers (especially clinics and hospitals) much prefer to hire these over non-nurse CMs.​If you’re not a registered nurse, you may still receive a decent salary as a doula. This can certainly be the case if you spend some extra effort on additional services like education and counseling. Note that the work of a midwife often involves long, irregular hours and is sometimes emotionally demanding.
