One of the realities of working in the healthcare field is the chance that, at some point, one of your clients could threaten legal action even years after their delivery. We’re responsible for the well-being of both our pregnant clients and their babies. There are risks that go along with this as well as volatile emotions. While we don’t want you to be scared, we do want to ensure you’re prepared and have the best tools at your disposal.

Our course, Comprehensive Legal Defense Tips for Midwives, is one of the most crucial classes you can take for your practice.

You’ll learn from Leslie Cornwell, a certified nurse midwife who has spent nearly 20 years navigating the healthcare field.

The course starts by breaking down the legal system as well as the risks we face as midwives. We’ll go over risk reduction before telling you how to protect yourself. We’ll also go over what to do if you are being sued. This can be an overwhelming topic, but preparation is key! Through this course, we’ll make sure you can practice with confidence.

Becoming a midwife has been a lifelong dream. I didn't realize that this wonderful profession would lead me down the path of business. I have found over the years that midwives need to understand business, accounting, financing, marketing, negotiating, and so much more to be successful in today's healthcare system. I love supporting women. By being able to participate in leadership roles and create amazing private practices, I can support midwives just as much as the pregnant women they care for! I am passionate about women's empowerment and women's business ownership. We can serve families best with independent, successful midwifery practices.

I have over 16 years’ of experience in health care. I have worked in hospitals, birth centers, and home settings. I have worked for large non-profit hospitals, small community hospitals, privately run birth centers, hospital-owned birth centers, my own home birth/birth center practice, and locum assignments. Being able to understand the business and financial side of midwifery has shown me how much easier a midwife's practice can be profitable and successful in today's health care ever-changing climate.

Let me help you start your own practice or improve the current midwifery business you are struggling with. I have years of billing, accounting, contracting, business plan writing, and midwifery clinical expertise to make your midwifery practice thrive no matter what stage it is in! Whether you want a small home birth practice, large birth center practice, or booming hospital midwifery practice, I can provide guidance, support, and resources to make your midwifery practice dreams a reality!
