Midwifery is hard, Midwifery Finishing School makes it easier.
So, you’ve started practicing independently and you’ve got all the new midwife insecurities: Did I do enough? Did I rule everything out? Do I know enough? You’re searching Google at the end of every clinic day and you’re wondering, “should it be this hard?”
NO! Midwifery IS hard but there is a short-cut to making it easier:
Midwifery Finishing School (MFS)!
Midwifery Finishing School is a self-paced online course for new or student midwives and its full of the un-Googleable knowledge you need as a midwife but didn’t get in school. It’s laid out in step-by-step guidelines and backed up by research, we even do live Q&A’s which is just the extended mentorship you need as a new practitioner! It covers miscarriage management, functional thyroid testing and management, supplements for GDM management, how to support a client with a mild-moderate mood disorder, and so. much. more. I’ve even added client handouts and algorithms for midwives to make this course one big midwifery hack. When in doubt, you’ll have a handout!
