I plan on taking Anatomy & Medical Ethics but need at least 2 more classes. I already have a BA in Psychology, and minors in both Sociology & religious studies... I am currently working as a doula so if it could potentially benefit me there, I am open to that as well.
If you could take classes to assist you in your journey towards being the PERFECT midwife what would you choose/have chosen?
A solid background in anatomy and physiology will serve you well. Also, medical terminology, pharmacology, and microbiology would be useful. I enjoyed my classes in nutrition, statistics, human development, and psych (which you have plenty of!). But then, I believe that all school benefits you in some way, even small. Enjoy your semester!
I strongly agree, my classes in A&P, med. terminology, microbiology and nutrition have proven very helpful to me already and I'm not too far in my studies!
Anatomy, Cellular biology, nutrition, business communications, and women studies. I really enjoyed my women studies courses and found them so helpful. I am similar to you a BS is psych but luckily I was prenursing so I got all of those type of classes done as well.
Homeschooling, midwifery mom to 4 beautiful blessings(8,6,4,1)
I am in A&P and developmental psych and one thing I can tell you is that I have zero time for midwifery studies or practice on top of family and school. A&P alone eats up 20 hours a week. I am regretting it a bit because I feel like it's setting me back a year on my midwifery studies. I think a strong midwifery based A&P class through a midwifery school would have been much more useful.
The reason I'm not taking classes through an online program is cost... I can get scholarships & loans for actual college classes... This university is really odd though... The only med. term class is for physical therapy/nursing students... I could take nutrition I guess... I ended up signing up for Anatomy, chem 2, medical ethics, yoga, & group communication... I am already 1 class from a minor in women's studies, but almost all our women's studies classes are women's history or lit... Thank you all for your input... It helped a lot... Oh & all our classes with a medical influence are closed to non med students... & the day I ever see this school offer a class on the placenta I'll get my fat tush up & do backflips lol.. Im jealous of those of you where that is an option!
