"Become a missionary midwife and deliver more than just the good news."

 

 

The Modules of Midwifery(MOM)  is a series of seminars aimed to train women as missionary midwives equipped to transform communities in the rural and developing world. Our initial MOM course is an apprenticeship prep program readying you to join a practice or clinic and begin working as an entry-level midwife on track for certification. MOM is a 24 week direct entry midwifery program and includes the opportunity to certify as a doula, childbirth educator, lactation consultant and birth assistant. This course includes teacher lead classroom facilitation and independent self study followed by apprenticeship placement, if desired.

 

This course is $4,200 tuition for 6 months of training (approximately $700 per month or $175 per week of training) plus a $500 security deposit due at the time of application which is non-refundable.  This helps us secure teachers for the year among other planning aspects.  Your course will also include many of your supplies and includes: books, materials, basic midwifery supplies (including: stethoscope, BP cuff, fetoscope, prenatal bag items and much, much more), as well as all 24 weeks of classroom instruction. This price does not include the application fee, food and housing or transportation. A 10% discount is given when paid in full. Please check with your course instructor for pay in full deadlines for your particular course.  Each module can be paid separately for a total of four payments, but must be paid prior to the beginning of each module. A discount will not be given when modules are paid individually.

 

This track feeds into two midwifery certification programs:

Certified Community Midwife, CCM which is a rural regions and developing world certification and requires the 24 week MOM core course, a 12 month field-based practicum training and the 6 month independent study continued education component.

Our program can also be included in the PEP process to become a Certified Professional Midwife, CPM which is recognized in 31 states within the USA. The CPM process requires a minimum of 2 years training and can include the MOM didactic portion for observed birth and skills training.

All in pursuit of the heart of God for women and what He

intends to do in our day through childbirth are welcome to join us.
