Why Midwifery?

In the videos below, learn why our students decided to learn to become nurse midwives.

Mary Dunn, Kiley Hewett, and Amy Rogers won the 2017 Annual American College of Nurse-Midwives Video Contest with their video, "Why Women Choose Midwives."


Lauren Mace shares her journey on becoming a nurse midwife -- from Romania to Cleveland. "I can't wait for the next adventure that life will bring and to work as a Certified Nurse Midwife."


Carly Koelsch (NUR '15) was the winner of the 8th Annual American College of Nurse-Midwives Video Contest, with Moment of Truth. "There was no other option for me, than to go into midwifery," narrates Koelsch in her video, animated by Chris Koelsch. "I needed to re-empower women, one at a time." Koelsch was honored with other award winners at the ACNM 60th Annual Meeting & Exhibition in National Harbor, Maryland.
