 “Skills classes have made me much more self confident in this role as future midwife. Being able to be hands on empowers new students to feel capable of performing these skills. Interacting with both new students and seasoned students provides peer accountability and experienced feedback respectively. I particularly love the relaxed atmosphere provided in order to not just accomplish some skills tasks but to interact with one another and glean from each other’s experiences. The open forum allows for students to learn visually, learn kinetically, and to learn auditorily.”

This course is designed and taught by a combination of educators like Lisa Aman, LM with both qualified credentials and several years experience working with various clients as a midwife, traveling overseas to developing countries as a leader and teacher, and/or many years experience working with and studying about various cultures in the U.S. and around the world.

Although this course does not accommodate every culture that exists, it does implement various strategies and studying tools to aid health care providers when working with any given culture unfamiliar the provider. The authors and instructors of the Midwife-to-be Cultural Competency and Sensitivity Course are always open to adding as many resources, materials and new discussions to the course to remain up-to-date and accurate.
