WHY WE DO IT

Women all over the world are dying of preventable causes in pregnancy, due to the simple lack of birth attendants and education. We have a vision to train and send skilled, God-fearing birth attendants into the nations to be the hands and feet of Jesus. 

LECTURE PHASE

The first 3 months of the school are a time to learn about God’s heart for healthy pregnancies and to be trained in practical skills.

You will learn about maternal health, how to manage a normal birth with complications that may arise, and provide skilled help for pregnant women. Through morning lectures and hands-on training workshops in the afternoons, you will gain understanding on both medical and spiritual topics.

Areas of training will include the importance of prayer, worship, listening, and obeying God in the labour room, teaching and training women about their bodies, nutrition, hygiene and safe birth practice, anatomy and physiology, practical skills with antenatal care, normal labour and delivery, common problems in postpartum, and newborn care.

This is a highly specialised birth attendant school to train you for developing nations, not for working in the Western world.

“THE HANDS OF THE ALMIGHTY ARE SO OFTEN TO BE FOUND AT THE ENDS OF OUR OWN ARMS.”

– SISTER MONICA JOAN

OUTREACH PHASE

The last 3 months you will have the opportunity to put into practice what has been learned on the lecture phase. You will work alongside other midwives and doctors in government hospitalsrural clinics, or with refugee populations.

You could be running an antenatal clinic, doing house visits assessing a newborn and mum’s postpartum check-ups, or serving in the labour room with mums giving birth. Your staff will be with you as you apply your skills and travel between nations.

This is an opportunity to create deep relationships with mothers and connect them to the heart of God in one of the most vulnerable times of their lives. It gives us a platform to share with them and their families about the One who is the bringer of all life — Jesus Christ!
