  • Australian midwifery programs

    Hello, I'm an American currently visiting Melbourne with my boyfriend (an Australian citizen). I was planning to study midwifery in the US, but now I'm considering staying in Australia. Can anyone recommend a good program--i.e., one that emphasizes natural birth and holistic midwifery and/or allows students to gain (at least some of) ...

    My limit is 3/month. I don't have kids or a day job, though. I guess the doula on Facebook could swing 2/week if she worked for a hospital doula program.

    I feel for you, littleredhen. I haven't seen "The Elk and the Epidural," but I know it's a Birthing From Within video, and I can definitely see teenagers having a hard time taking it seriously. I show my clients Penny Simkin's "Relaxation, Rhythm, Ritual: The 3 Rs of Childbirth." ...

  • Re: direct-entry programs

    Thank you, Sherry. I really appreciate that. I sent the first three e-mails months and months ago. I sent the fourth one about a week ago. I used the e-mail address listed on their website. I'd hate to give up on it because I need to take a course that will satisfy Birthingway's A&P prerequisite, and it would be great ...

    My problem with MCU is that I have e-mailed them four (4) times to ask about taking their anatomy course as a continuing ed course, but no one has acknowledged my e-mails! Not a good sign, IMO.
  • Re: direct-entry programs

    Hi, Rebekah! Nice to "meet" you! Yes, there are definitely people in B'more who are interested in midwifery. There are several CNM practices, including two birth centers (in the Annapolis area) and one that does homebirth. There are also a couple of DEMs and quite a few doulas and childbirth educators. The Baltimore City ...

    Joy, Do you know if direct-entry/non-nurse midwives trained in the US can become registered midwives in Australia? Does one need a Bachelor's degree in Midwifery?

  • Re: direct-entry programs

    I agree with you, Hypnomama. If I'm not mistaken, there are some states that require graduation from a MEAC-accredited program for licensure. The schools I'm looking at (Birthingway College of Midwifery, Florida School of Traditional Midwifery) offer didactics (via on-campus classes, timeframes, etc.) and incorporate the ...

    [quote user="GloriaLemay"]   We have to remember that women are having their babies at home unassisted all over N. America and the stats on that are very good.    [/quote]   Are they? I didn't know we had stats on unassisted birth. Where can I find them?
