Internationally Educated Midwives (IEM)

Effective May 1, 2018, any midwife with international credentials (with the exception of UK Registered Midwives) will need to apply to NARM through the MEAC accredited educational program route; or complete the PEP application with all PEP clinical experience occurring in the U.S. or Canada.

All internationally educated midwives should be aware that licensure for midwives in the U.S. is different in every state. Obtaining a CPM credential is not the same as obtaining a state license to practice. Midwives who are seeking to work as a midwife in a specific state should research the requirements for licensure in that state.

Any applicant whose IEM application process has been approved by the NARM applications department prior to May 1, 2018 will be able to continue the IEM certification process. These IEM applicants should have already been contacted by the applications department.
