Legislation passed during the 2015 legislative session authorizes the Board to license Direct-Entry Midwives to perform midwifery outside of a hospital setting, primarily in homes. The Direct-Entry Midwifery Advisory Committee was formed in 2015 and has been working on promulgation of appropriate regulations, an application for licensure form, and other documents that have been subsequently approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing. The regulations were adopted as of November 17, 2016. The Board may now commence receiving applications.
Meeting time is from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
Meetings are generally held the first Friday of each month.
