Educating the Birth Workers of Tomorrow

At the Midwifery Institute, we train aspiring birth workers to provide compassionate care based on a marriage of centuries of tradition and modern scientific evidence. Founded in 2014, we provide extensive and intensive Doula training in a number of specialties, continuing education and webinars on a variety of childbearing related topics. We lead our students to practice among diverse populations and honor the holistic significance of birth and its unique place in spiritual, physical, and mental implications for each family.

Doula Training

Our Doula training courses provide an intensive and complete education to assist you in beginning your career as an entry-level birth worker, providing physical and emotional support as well as education to clients from a variety of backgrounds.  

We don’t do weekend seminars and a book report. Our Intensive courses are just that. Courses. They are complete with assignments and grades and are asynchronous and self-led, with no due dates and no deadlines so that you can complete your coursework on your own timeline. 

Get started with Doula Certification, then expand your knowledge and your practice with Fertility Doula Training & Certification, Pregnancy & Infant Loss Doula Training, and Postpartum Doula Training and Certification. 


In May I finally took the leap I knew I was meant to make. I found @midwiferyinstitute and knew it was right for me. Taking classes in my own time, affordable options, and a supportive community!”- Sam M. 2022
