Birth Institute partners with established birth clinics and professional midwives to provide leadership and midwifery training opportunities abroad. Through a combination of clinical rotations, book study and community projects, participants develop the skills necessary to become the future leaders of positive change in maternal healthcare. Our programs are designed to help students explore holistic health, maternal health stewardship, community development and women-centered advocacy.
We are looking for applicants who want to have a positive impact on the future of maternal health worldwide, who will actively take part in a rigorous training and who will engage thoughtfully in a critical dialogue about the state of our world and the state of maternal health worldwide.
