As midwives, there’s no greater joy than getting to deliver a healthy baby. We’ve sat with parents since the very beginning and now get to assist while they meet their newborns for the first time. It is our responsibility to do all we can to ensure babies have the best start! This course is dedicated to doing just that.
The Comprehensive Newborn Care Guide for Midwives is rich with information so you can have the tools to care for a baby long before they enter this world. You’ll learn the different maternal and fetal factors that might affect a newborn’s health before learning how to address these with your client. Next, we’ll talk all about newborns! We’ll go over all the routine care for a newborn before going into potential complications. You’ll learn everything from newborn cardiac complications to resuscitation. The goal is to prepare you for every emergency so you can face these potential situations with total confidence. The course will teach you about newborn screenings, breastfeeding support and postpartum tips. We’ll conclude by addressing all the administrative aspects such as billing and coding.
Whether you’ve just started on your midwifery journey or have been practicing for years, this course has something for you! I’m a midwife who started out in health over a decade ago. I designed this course because I adore getting to empower midwives through knowledge. My goal is for you to be ready to face every aspect of newborn care.

Rhanishia graduated with her Bachelor's in Nursing in 2010. She went on to start her career as a RN, serving in The United States Public Health Service as a Commissioned Officer. Rhanishia spent the beginning of her nursing journey, serving the Native American population in Arizona. During that time, she worked in family medicine, obstetrics, and Public Health Nursing. Rhanishia worked closely with prenatal women out in the community, helping them to successfully breastfeed and care for their newborns. This is when Rhanishia decided that she would one day work with women and children as a primary care provider. This experience helped Rhanishia become board certified as an international lactation consultant (IBCLC).
After completing her Master's in Nursing and becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner, Rhanishia soon discovered that she would want to become an expert at Women’s Health and become a better advocate for the women and families she cared for. Rhanishia is currently enrolled in Baylor’s Doctoral Midwifery Program, and working as Labor & Delivery nurse at a level IV facility in Houston, Texas. Rhanishia is most excited to empower and educate women. She does so in her current nursing role, but also enjoys educating via her business and YouTube channel titled PractitionHER. Rhanishia is keenly aware that when you care for a mother – the entire family dynamic is enhanced.
