  • Midwifery Licensure Is Voluntary in Oregon
    Betty and baby
    A licensed direct entry midwife (LDM) supervises the conduct and labor of childbirth, advises the parent as to the progress of childbirth, and renders prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum care. Licensed direct entry midwives provide care in the home, in birthing centers, clinics, and as teachers at midwifery schools. Licensure is voluntary, and unlicensed midwives may practice in Oregon.

    The Oregon Health Licensing Agency (OHLA) oversees regulation of direct entry midwifery and other health and related professions. To access OHLA's home page, go to Department at the top of the left navigation menu and click on Oregon Health Licensing Agency.

Until this can be determined and rules implemented, licensed direct entry midwives are prohibited from purchasing and administering antibiotic prophylaxis for Group B Streptococcal for maternal use, until further notice.​

  • Important License Renewal Information for Licensed Direct Entry Midwives

    When preparing to renew a license in 2013, licensed direct entry midwives must be sure to provide the correct form, the Annual Summary Report, for the previous completed year for the MANA Statistics Project.

    Licensed direct entry midwives must also submit a Peer Review Summary Sheet, which has been updated to remove all reporting of non-absolute and absolute risk information.
