Sometimes, you just have to get back to the basics! Whether you’re a midwife with decades of experience or are just starting out in this wonderful world, regularly spending time going over core skills is one of the best things you can do. That’s exactly why I designed this course. I have been in the healthcare industry for over 16 years and know how vital it is to constantly be growing. I want to give you a way to both review and challenge yourself so you can provide an empowering birth experience to your clients.

Through this course, we’ll start at the very beginning of why midwifery matters. You’ll learn about the history of childbirth in America and understand why birth choice matters. We’ll go over the technical aspects such as licensing, terminology, educational pathways, and requirements. We’ll talk all about the prenatal stage before moving onto labor assistance. From positions to emergency procedures, I’ll make sure you feel ready for every aspect of childbirth. We’ll then talk about newborn and postpartum care before ending the course by reviewing how to assist your clients with various forms of contraception.

My goal is to ensure you are ready for every situation. Because the class is so packed with valuable information, I’ve created an exclusive Facebook community where you’ll be able to connect with others from the class. You’ll be able to discuss the information, ask questions, and share experiences. Through this group, you’ll be able to move from studying this information to applying it to your career.

At Empowering Midwifery Education, we’re here to ensure you’re constantly learning and growing! Once you buy this course, you’ll have lifetime access and can revisit as needed. You’ll have access to any future course updates free of charge. The class is virtual and gives you the ability to learn at your own pace so you can fit it around your busy schedule. You’ll be able to ask questions throughout and get answers from our expert instructors. We can’t wait to help you unlock your potential by equipping you with knowledge!

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 health care 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 business ownership. We can serve families best with independent successful midwifery practices.

I have had over 16 years’ 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, own home birth / birth center practice, and locum assignments. Being able to understand the business and financial side of midwifery has really shown me how much easier a midwife 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!
