"The Birth Assistants Basics course was an excellent adjunct to my education at MCU. I decided to enroll in the course while I was taking the Birth Assistant class at MCU because I wanted the hands on experience that MCU is lacking. I learned so much during my weekend with Micki and Chelsea, and felt it was so worth the extra investment. I began my first clinical placement shortly after taking the course and felt so well prepared. I was able to start my first day already familiar with the supplies, equipment, basic charting and with basic emergency procedures in the role of assistant. I was also able to feel confident my first day taking blood pressures, pulse, temperature and drawing up medications. This class was invaluable to me, as well as to the midwives who’s practice I joined. Added to all that, Micki and Chelsea are warm, knowledgable instructors. They did an excellent job of fitting a lot of information into the weekend while keeping it interesting and fun!"
