Do you know of any recorded midwifery study tools, such as recorded lectures on CDs, mp3s/podcasts, etc.??? I'm in the car sooooo much and would love to use this time to study and learn by listening.

If you don't know of any already in existence, will some of you fabulous, experienced midwives consider recording some?

Thanks!

Thank you, busymomma! I may purchase a few of those!


Any other ideas for text-books or study guides on cd/mp3/whtaever?

I found this item on ebay that would cover a wide range of topics; however, it is a CD-ROM meant for the computer. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....ht_2301wt_1167

I would love to have something along those lines that I could listen to in the car.

Oh, and I think they have recorded archives of different webinars that were hosted at consciouswoman.org I attended a few of those webinars and really enjoyed them.

I also suggest all of the mp3 downloads on aamishop.com. They are extremely informative, but some of them are muffled or quiet sometimes because of recording at the trust birth conference. AWESOME!

I ordered one of AAMI for a long trip we were taking and it was the worst quaility I have ever hear. I couldnt hear half of it, it was all static. I was extremely dissapointed. Hopfully they arent all like that. And yes $15 is too much for what I got.

I didn't even think about that- many of them I earned as an AAMI student and the ones I paid for I bought when all the MP3s were on discount.

The sound quality isn't great (and I have bad hearing to boot) but I was able to get the gist of it.

hram- if the particular session you purchased was that bad, I would contact them and ask about getting a different session instead!

If you have studies, files, etc in pdf format, Acrobat Reader has a function where it will read aloud. It's kind of monotone and mispronounces a lot of scientific terms, but I've used it and it's helped me multitask.

I wish Midwifery Today would sell their conference recordings as mp3...tapes are so outdated and I don't really have room for bunch of them to be stored...

Anyone in touch with them to encourage them?

I was going to but I purchased it sometime last year before a vacation and then after moving I just forgot about it. I dont know if it would be right to try and recieve another one. But I was extremely dissapointed, Im really hoping the rest arent so bad. I do want some, well all of them!

That's such a bummer about the quality. I only have two, but they're both easy to understand. I would definitely contact them about switching for a different one.
