Experience?: Are you getting at who has the most experience? "Nurses" as a general term may or may not have experience in deliveries. Perinatal nurses specifically spend their days delivering and helping new mothers and their babies. They do lots of "handling" A midwife does prenatal care and delivers babies in a variety of capacities, some are which are NOT in hospitals. Hospital delivery is safest 4 baby
