About the Midwifery ONE Education Program
Previously known as the WomanCraft Midwifery Education, the Midwifery ONE Education program is a completely updated program that utilizes the virtual learning environment to provide a strong structured student environment. There is a strong emphasis on core knowledge, systems thinking, critical thinking skills, and trans-disciplinary learning.
Our new name represents a long overdue shift towards a more inclusive form of midwifery education that values the diverse racial, cultural, geographic, and socio-economic backgrounds of students, supports families of all types, and that acknowledges that parents, birthing individuals, and those that care for them identify with many gender identities or sexual orientations. Our mission is to create an welcoming, safe, equitable, inclusive, anti-oppressive, self-reflective program. Midwifery ONE is about taking the first step on your journey as an aspiring midwife.
Our Midwifery Education programs are designed to provide a strong academic foundation for aspiring midwives working on the PEP (Portfolio Evaluation Process) route of training to become a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and for those not seeking certification that would like to build their midwifery knowledge base. Our program provides academic training based on the
core competencies set forth by the Midwives Alliance of North America
*Disclaimer* CPM requirements, and the PEP Process are regulated by the North American Registry of Midwives and change/update frequently. Students are encouraged to check NARM's requirements on a regular bass and educate themselves about both NARM regulations and the laws (or lack there of) that pertain to midwifery in the state they plan to practice in. Midwifery is regulated/unregulated differently in all 50 states. Please visit MANA for information on your state.
