MMA Basic Midwifery Course
A Journey into Midwifery
Dedicated to the age old art of Midwifery in its simplest form: The passing of wisdom from one woman to another. We honor and cherish the midwives who continue these traditions.
The MMA Basic Midwifery Course combines in depth independent study with an engaging bimonthly full day classroom. Our comprehensive course can help you prepare for apprenticeship or clinical work, gain insight into childbearing and women’s health, ground your doula or childbirth education practice in an expansive knowledge base, and connect you to a great group of women.
The MMA Midwifery Course uses a unique format balancing independent study, with in house all day classes generally meeting two Saturdays a month. Students complete homework, projects, and readings at home. Class time is used to synthesize knowledge, practice hands on skills, share experiences and learn from being with the midwives and each other. Students will have the opportunity to train as doulas and childbirth educators over a comprehesive full weekend workshop. Our students have gone on to apprenticeships, clinical programs, nursing school, doula work and other paths.
