This course is part of a series of programs with the goal of equipping midwives to integrate knowledge and skills to provide a full-scope of midwifery practice. This is a continuation of the CNH 271/272 midwifery school for students who have completed those requirements, or by permission by school leadership. Students may have lectures at a field location as they gain further understanding and insight about the birthing practices and handling complications in the community. Lecture content includes puerperal sepsis, obstructed labor, postpartum hemorrhage and eclampsia. Students will also be involved in clinical experience and research projects. The intent of this program is to help students progress in their knowledge and practical skills with a focus on demonstrating Christ as they fulfill requirements for credentialing and licensure as a professional midwife. This program includes international standards for knowledge and skills competencies that are required by many national and international regulatory boards. The midwifery instructors and clinical preceptors, who verify documentation of knowledge and skills achievements, are health care providers holding professional credentials in their field.

Birth Attendant School ( CNH 271 )

A Midwife Assistant serves midwives, as they care for their clients. The care is primarily of women and families with normal pregnancies, and is always under the supervision of a professional health care provider, or health care system supervisor. In this program, the students learn basic, entry level health care skills with a specific focus on midwifery in the community. This care includes basic prenatal care, labor, birth, postpartum and newborn care. It also covers various international requirements for midwifery credentials, writing midwifery protocols, emergency care, and timely transfers to a higher level of medical care. The midwifery instructors and clinical preceptors, who verify documentation of knowledge and skills achievement, are health care providers holding professional credentials in their field. This is an excellent entry point for those who wish to become professional midwives, or community midwives because there is no assumption of prior birth knowledge.

Midwifery Certification Course ( CNH 375 )

This course is designed to help students demonstrate Christ as they fulfil requirements for credentialing and licensing as a professional midwife. It includes international competency standards for knowledge and skills that are required by many national and international regulatory boards. This course has the goal of equipping midwives to integrate knowledge and skills to provide a full-scope of midwifery practice. It focuses on students transitioning from a student or assistant role, into an autonomous healthcare provider role. Lecture content usually includes professional communications, more advanced anatomy and physiology for midwives, professional issues and ethics in midwifery, gynaecology, pre-conception care, fertility regulation, STD/STI and infection control, and professional considerations for services. Students will also be involved in clinical experience, research projects, and protocol writing (refining professional guidelines).

Midwife-Teacher Development ( CNH 377 )

This course specifically teaches credentialed/registered midwives how to teach student midwives. Many direct-entry midwives learn as apprentices under professional midwives, in both developed and under-developed nations. There is a huge need for this extra development of teaching strategies and skills for midwives who mentor others. The World Health Organization addresses this area as one of the major methods of influencing midwifery and saving lives around the world. We can influence many for Christ in taking this lead. This course could be used in addressing teaching skills for other health care professions as well. In the Midwife Teacher School, the midwives have didactic, as well as clinical sessions to help them develop the needed strategies, enabling them to instruct midwives in the full scope of practice, both for families having normal pregnancies and those who are experiencing an emergency that must be referred to a higher level of care. The Midwife Teacher may be mentoring students who will become certified/registered professionals or those who will solely work under the supervision of another professional health care provider, or health care system. Student Teachers are assisted to master post-basic midwifery skills, and then to learn effective teaching skills for educating healthcare providers. This program addresses the goal of reducing maternal and neonatal mortality, and morbidity, by increasing the skills of midwife teachers, therefore increasing the capabilities of their student population. This is an excellent entry point for those who wish to become professional midwife instructors, or to teach community midwives. This course has a field assignment/practicum available with qualified midwife teachers, to give the students guided, reinforced experiential learning.
