I went to MLL.

I think it is one of the best programs out there. I felt very well studied and experienced when I finished. Not only do you study the academics but you get tons of clinical expereince..more so than in many other places. Plus you get to work with several different midwives and their individual styles.

It is a really hard program...at least the intensive 13 month one that I did. 2 to 3 24hr clinic shifts and 3 full class days a week. It is physically and emotionally exhausting.

If you have children and a husband it is really something to think about...I know that sometimes it has been hard for a partner to find a job out there.

If you are taking their new extended program it means more years out there. Will your husband be able to be the care provider for the children? You will not see them much, depending upon which program you choose.

Feel free to ask more questions...good luck with your choices!

I went to MLL! I loved my time there and felt very well prepared once I completed my training. I had no problem passing the NARM. I agree with the pp that it is a very intense program and you really won't sleep much the entire year, but you will get a lot of experience. IMO you do need to speak Spanish, at least a basic knowledge, before you go because you will be providing 99.9% of care in Spanish.

So anyone go shorter than a year? Anyone go for clinical placement? What about Advanced Midwifery Intensive or the introductory midwifery intensive?

Heather...who really wishes the MT forums were UP!!!
