Midwifery Core Competencies

Evidence Based Standards for Midwifery Scope of Practice

  Enroll in Course

As midwives, we have a large scope of practice to offer women and their families. We can do the traditional route of maternity care, but I challenge midwives to practice to their full scope of licensure and training. We can also take care of the newborn first month of life, gynecological services, contraception, primary care, sexual health, menopause, well women care, and treatment of partners with care is around sexually transmitted infections. We have a vast array of capability to serve our communities and this extensive course will go over every aspect of evidence-based midwifery skills.

Keep up with current trends or just expand your midwifery services with this thorough, lifetime access online training. There are videos, PowerPoints, outlines, policies, and resources to really take your midwifery practice to the next level!

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!
