Hi, I am new to this site :)  I live in Tx with my husband and two babies with my third on the way and I am wanting to become a midwife. I am looking at taking some classes online. That would be ideal for me for the convenience and whatnot. I am not totally opposed to doing something in class if it was the right fit.  I already have a preceptor,(my awesome midwife that will be helping me welcome my second girl this fall).  I looked in to the "Midwife to be" program and granted the price is right I haven't heard the greatest things about it so far.  I am waiting to hear back from the LivingTree Midwifery School.  So, I guess my question is. Are there some other options out there for me?  Also if anyone is going thru "Midwife to be" or LivingTree, what do you think?   

 

Thanks so much!! :)

I don't have any suggestions for you but I saw your post and thought I'd bump it up for attention. 

 

Anyone have any suggestions? I think we should create a resource article for this topic! smile.gif

I would HIGHLY reccomend looking into the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program! www.texasmidwives.com

The schoolwork is done through correspondence, so you dont have to go to a classroom. At the end of each module, you will be required to attend a Module Workshop and take an exam. Those are only every 4- months though.

I would also suggest attending some of the Midwifery Complaint Review Meetings in Austin as much as possible.
