The Yale Nurse-Midwifery Practice is a small nurse-midwifery service run by Yale School of Nursing faculty and students. The clientele is primarily middle class, insured or self-paying, married, and carrying a planned pregnancy. A retrospective chart review was conducted on 175 consecutive patients and their infants to determine antepartum, intrapartum, and neonatal/postpartum characteristics and outcomes. These outcomes are uniformly good, and this type of faculty practice can be useful as a prototype both in and out of a university setting.
