Academy of Experiential Midwifery Education
In her continued efforts to manifest a midwife for every mother and birth person, Sarita has opened a new program – the Academy of Experiential Midwifery Education – in Charlottesville, VA. The program is based on hands-on learning and storytelling and geared towards the adult learner. Using a combination of common sense explanations of physiology with innovative experiential techniques, the program will midwife the students through their journey towards becoming a Certified Professional Midwife through the Portfolio Evaluation Process.
The students will meet weekly with skills intensives every other month to supplement their experience. The program is currently a two-year program with an optional third year being developed.
Sarita has been working with others on the staff of the Community School of Midwifery to develop a trademarked curriculum known as “The Connection Curriculum for Midwives”. The first year of the Academy will be a pilot project for this new curriculum.
