"I recently completed Believe In Midwifery’s E course and it was SO worth my time! Even if someone warns you about the toll midwifery will take on you, you won’t believe it. Madeline’s course is perfect for all stages of a Midwifery journey! Her course allows you to stop and decide what you want and need for your career and your one life you get on earth! I am better for all the thought and planning this course provided space for. Do this for your clients, family, friends and most Importantly, yourself! "
- Paige, Midwife
"After doing some private consulting with Madeline to try to clean up the mess of my growing disorganized practice, burnt out self, and neglected family, I had the honor of being one of the first to take Believe in Midwifery’s Guide to Sustainable Midwifery e-course. You guys, this course is exactly what you need if you’re starting out on your own. This is money wisely invested that will prevent much heartache and fallout down the road. Don’t do what I did, and try to figure this stuff out on your own after years of running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. Remember, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Our world desperately needs more midwives! Take this course!"
- Terri, Midwife and Practice Owner
