applications are now open for the 2023 cohort.
Becoming a midwife is a vulnerable, courageous and chaotic process that goes beyond providing intimate and personalized care to people with uteruses. The training you've received focuses on labor, skills, and assessments, but neglects the self discovery and personal growth necessary to be a confident leader and care provider.
Midwifery students and new midwives enter a ‘sink or swim’ environment where the elders eat their young. You are often left building the groundwork for burnout and exhaustion, confused about your place in healthcare, in the profession of midwifery and where your life is going.
This is where our mentorship at Manhattan Birth comes in.
Meet your clients and the community right where they are from an actively inclusive and empowering place.
Authentically grow your practice with the right-fit clients. Let us assist you as you build your practice and know your clear scope of work.
Join a community of midwives dedicated to serving with integrity and care. Call on your peers & mentors when you have questions, and refer them out when you're booked up.
The program runs for 12 months, and our first training begins January 31, 2023. This is a virtual but live and interactive program with classes on Tuesday nights from 6-8pm Eastern time. You will be mentored by the one and only Tanya Wills, CNM, IBCLC.
Generous scholarships are available to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and disabled folks. We also offer special pricing for student midwives. Please note in your application if this applies to you.
"There is no way, that I would be getting through my accelerated midwifery program whole, without the guidance and support I've received from Tanya. Her empathy, understanding and wise words have kept me on track, my eyes laser focused on my goals, and have kept my head above water when I felt surely I would drown."
