The Purpose of this training is to help eradicate the shortage and to address the inequities in access to African American Midwives.
This training will provide skills for a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) . The CPM is the only midwifery credential that requires knowledge of and experience with birth in out-of-hospital settings.
This training will prepare you to become an independent practitioner educated in the discipline of midwifery through apprenticeship, self-study, distinct from the discipline of nursing. After completing the program you will be a direct-entry midwife providing services based on the Midwives Model of Care to healthy women, pregnant people, and newborns through the childbearing cycle (primarily in out-of-hospital settings including homes and free-standing birth centers) and may also provide gynecological wellness care. applications are available now at: http://www.communitybirthschool.com/awwwmt/
