Childbirth/Antenatal Educator Seminar ( CNH 175 )

The Childbirth Educator supports pregnant women and families by providing prenatal health education, birth preparation, and important information to assist families in making decisions regarding their birth and new baby. The Teacher/Facilitator Development portion actually gives time to learn more teaching concepts and to practice skills in a community setting. This seminar includes training for "Pregnant Life Circles", which incorporates the Childbirth Education topics with basic prenatal care in a group setting. This helps to create more community support and empowers women to follow through with healthier reproductive outcomes. These skills can be adapted for most locations where missionaries would serve pregnant women. This course also can equip workers who are already serving in other capacities to reach out to those in need, through a simple health education format, either in a classroom setting or one-on-one counseling.

Midwife-Teacher Development ( CNH 377 )

The specific objective for this course is to equip midwifery teachers, including clinical preceptors, to educate midwifery students who will be providing culturally responsive care, normally to women with normal pregnancies. 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.
