Midwifery Finishing School

A self paced online course to close the gaps in your midwifery education.

Now offering 9 MEAC CEUs!

Midwifery is hard, Midwifery Finishing School makes it easier.

 So, you’ve started practicing independently and you’ve got all the new midwife feels: Did I do enough? Did I rule everything out? Do I know enough? You’re searching Google at the end of every clinic day and you’re wondering, “should it be this hard?”

NO! MIDWIFERY IS HARD BUT THERE IS A SHORT-CUT TO MAKING IT EASIER:
MIDWIFERY FINISHING SCHOOL (MFS)!

Midwifery Finishing School is a self-paced online course for new or student midwives and its full of the un-Googleable knowledge you need as a midwife but didn’t get in school. It’s laid out in step-by-step guidelines and backed up by research, we even do live Q&A’s which is just the extended mentorship you need as a new practitioner! It covers miscarriage management, functional thyroid testing and management, supplements for GDM management, how to support a client with a mild-moderate mood disorder, and so. much. more. I’ve even added client handouts and algorithms for midwives to make this course one big midwifery hack. 

When in doubt, you’ll have a handout!

Who is Midwifery Finishing School For?

Whether you’re a CNM, CM, CPM or LM, this course was made with student or new-ish midwives in mind! A more experienced midwife who wants to learn how to test and treat the thyroid, provide MTHFR testing, follow up testing and treatments or what follow up testing is applicable for clients experiencing recurrent miscarriage would also learn a tremendous amount. Some doulas have even enjoyed taking this course. Basically, it’s for anyone who wants to:

  • Gain more confidence in their practice

  • Enjoy midwifery mentorship and community

  • Elevate and add services to their care
