"Birth Assistant Education is notable for their online versatile material that covers necessary clinical skills, knowledge, responsibilities, and techniques of out-of-hospital birth professionals. Their expertise and guidance create enjoyable learning opportunities that are congruent with the Midwifery Model of Care™. The classes are great for people new to out-of-hospital birth or those seeking to refresh their skills. As an example, early on my path to becoming a midwife the videos and quizzes would have helped build my confidence as a student midwife, especially as a hands-on, visual learner."

- Amy Frazier, LM, CPM

"I took the birth assisting training because I was trying to get into midwifery school and I had almost no experience attending births. I wanted to get my hands on all the knowledge and training available. I'm so glad I did! Micki & Chelsea are so skilled at teaching and so experienced at birth assisting that I knew I was in good hands throughout the training. After the basic training I also took an emergency skills course and found that incredibly helpful as well. I think this course should be a prerequisite for midwifery school."
Marnie Raelene, Bastyr University 2015 midwifery graduate

"I took the Birth Assistant training while I was in midwifery school, in between my first and second year. This training was concise, focused, and hands-on. The instructors were approachable and great at explaining the course material. As a birth doula learning to be a midwife, this class was helpful to picking up concrete skills to use in my school courses. I walked into my first birth experiences as a student midwife with a firm understanding of the monitoring skills used in labor and important emergency skills."
