Online Classes

Since 1992, Midwifery Today has been a leader in education for midwives. In addition to publishing a magazine, we have put on over 75 conferences throughout the world. In keeping with the times, we are expanding our reach by offering online classes for beginning and seasoned midwives, as well as other birth professionals. Whether you live in Fiji, France or a country in between, we will have the class for you. Check our site for current classes, and look for upcoming specially-themed conferences.

We are using Adobe Connect, an online platform that is robust with features that allow for interaction not only with the speaker but also with other participants. Midwifery Today creates each online class to be fun, informative and inviting. As a participant, you will have the ability to ask questions, participate in activities, interact in breakout sessions, download handouts and surf the links suggested by presenters. Moreover, each class is recorded, so, if you should miss a class, you are able to access the recording at your convenience. Finally, the classes are monitored by a Midwifery Today online event manager who is there to help should any technical difficulties occur.
