20 Aug Delivering Protection And Peace of Mind To Midwives
Liability Insurance for Midwives
In the U.S., midwives date back to the American colonies, when women passed skills they brought from Britain from one woman to another. Midwives serve an important purpose, offering a more intimate experience for mothers-to-be at home or in a birthing center, versus a detached, traditional hospital.
As of 2017, there were 11,826 certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) and 101 certified midwives (CMs) in the U.S.* The vast majority of midwives in the U.S. are certified nurse-midwives — licensed, independent healthcare providers with prescription authority in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, and Puerto Rico. The CM credential, however, is not yet recognized in all states.
Midwives consult with obstetricians and other healthcare professions to help ensure a safe and healthy birthing experience. Yet even with the best of intentions, errors can occur, resulting in injuries that can be life altering at best, life-threatening at worst — including cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries (weakness or inability to use certain muscles in the hand, arm or shoulder), cephalohematoma, stillborn, death and developmental delays.
All midwives must be protected against malpractice and litigation that can threaten their assets, homes, and financial well-being. XINSURANCE can safeguard your assets from the threat of a devastating lawsuit. We’ll even defend you in the event you are named in an incident, claim or lawsuit.
