Maybe we’re biased, but at Empowering Midwifery Education, we firmly believe being a midwife is the best job out there! We help parents take control of their own deliveries, get to meet some adorable little newborns, and provide general healthcare for a group of people who have historically been written out of the narrative. With so much to do, there’s a lot to learn before you set out on your career. Luckily, we’re here to help you along!
We created the course, Tips for Running a Successful Midwifery Practice, to teach you all you need to know about being a midwife. This course is ideal for people just starting out in their practice, but it’s full of rich information you’ll want to know even if you’re years into your career. Throughout your time, you’ll learn from Leslie Cornwell, a certified nurse midwife who has over 16 years of experience. With over 35 hours of content, this course really does have something for everyone!
We start out the class by getting back to the basics. You’ll learn about the future of midwifery, the myths of the business, and some of the mistakes people make when starting out. Next, we’re going to dive into what it takes to start a flourishing midwife practice. We’ll talk about time management, leadership mindsets, and preventing burnout. You’ll work on getting the wheels in motion by creating a business plan, an executive summary, and a market analysis. We’ll discuss the business side of things such as hiring and firing, branding, marketing, and creating an exit strategy. We will also get into the rules and regulations so you can face challenges and know how to keep your clients safe. By the end, you’ll feel equipped to take your “what ifs” and make them real!
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.

Here’s what people are saying about this course:
“This information will guide many different aspects of my practice, ultimately leading to my practice being able to serve more women in my community”
“This motivated me to open my own practice and I have learned a lot of great tips!”
“I see myself as a business owner, not just a midwife. I can now plan for a successful business that will hopefully continue in my community past when I retire!”
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!
