"I took the Birth Assistants Basics Course before applying to Bastyr's Midwifery Program. I wanted to get an idea of the kinds of things I would do as a Student Midwife at births, and increase my own knowledge to feel more comfortable starting school. I am so glad I took this course! It completely solidified that the Midwifery program was where I need to be, and leaving the class, I was even more excited about starting than I was before. When we started our birth assisting class in the Midwifery program, I already had a leg up on many of the acronyms commonly used, as well as how to chart and setting up for a birth. I feel so much more prepared and confident to start attending births. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to take the Birth Assistants course with Micki and Chelsea! "
