I am an experienced doula and CBE, have a bachelor's degree in a non-midwifery field, and I have connected with a CPM locally who is eager to have me as an apprentice.

 

I would like to have a MEAC-accredited distance program to accompany my apprenticeship with this amazing midwife. I will be working with her to open a birth center, as well as attending home births (I have attended approx. 15 home births already with her as a doula). My state does not license CPMs, but they are also not illegal here. There is a very active group working toward licensing.

 

Any reflections on these two schooling options, Midwives College of Utah vs. NCM? I don't hear much about the Utah program on MDC or elsewhere, but it looks so professional to me.

 

My doula partner, who has a MSW, will possibly be studying and apprenticing with me.

 

I'm not interested in the PEP process.

 

I'd be grateful for your insights!

I would be so grateful for any feedback on these two schools.  :)

Which state are you in? imo, licensing is not necessarily a good thing. kwim? how does licensing benefit mothers and babies? it only benefits the state with revenue. I would love to live in a state where midwifery isn't licensed and isn't illegal.
