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!

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.
