Classes and Workshops

Come learn from experienced midwives!

Birthing Your Way offers comprehensive Midwifery Skills Training Workshops, and we can come to you!  We need a minimum of 5 students to book a training.  These sessions are great for beginning student midwives, as well as those with experience.  The skills taught closely mirror those required by NARM, and sign-offs are offered for each skill mastered.  Our midwives are NARM approved and we have designed our training to fulfill NARM skills requirements, and those skills listed in the Practical Skills Guide for Midwifery.
