The Basic Course in Midwifery download our brochure
Through hands on learning that values empirical knowledge, current peer-reviewed research and an evidence-based standard-of-care, the MMA brings a balanced, in-depth, and well rounded education to women seeking a comprehensive understanding of the child-bearing year. The course provides instruction in midwifery and the didactic foundation for apprenticeship. The MMA holds that the model of apprenticeship after thorough didactic study is the gold-standard for entering the midwifery field.
This is a rigorous course instructed by practicing midwives from across Massachusetts who bring alive a vast array of material. Intensive whole day classes are held twice a month and cover subjects from the legacy of midwives, pregnancy, labor, postpartum, herbal and alternative remedies, testing, complications, to business and much more. This class includes a Doula weekend training, CPR and NNR Certification, and instruction in a wide range of practical skills. Being self motivated and ready to learn and share are the only prerequisites.
