I am starting my apprenticeship this fall and I am trying to decide on an academic midwifery program. I am currently working on a distance learning course through Birth Arts International that will certify me as a Monitrice & Midwife's Assistant. I will be finishing up this course work in 6-8 months. At that time I want to enroll in some type of distance learning Midwifery school. I am not interested in doing Ancient Art for a few different reasons that I really don't want to get into. I am also not interested in the accredited programs that are out there.
From the programs that I've been able to find, two are at the top of my list. Michigan School of Traditional Midwifery and the Living Tree International College of Midwifery. I like that these schools are in depth and you can work at your own pace. I am leaning towards Living Tree for a few reasons. One of those being that it is a non-profit school and the tuition is based on your ability to pay.
So I'm wondering if any of you have any feedback for me about these two programs? And also, do you know of any great schools that I may have missed so far in my searches??
