Midwifery Preceptors

To work as a preceptor at Birthingway, a midwife must meet certain standards for training and client care.

Preceptors must have attended a total of at least 100 births. Of these, at least a minimum of 25 births must be out-of-hospital births and 50 births must be as an unsupervised primary midwife.

A CPM, CNM, CM, or State-Licensed Midwife must have completed a minimum of 18 months experience as an unsupervised primary midwife after the end of their training. This can be reduced by up to six months for Birthingway graduates who held Advanced Student Midwife status per policy before graduating.

All other Midwives must have completed a minimum of 36 months experience as an unsupervised primary midwife after the end of training.

Preceptors must be currently certified in Adult and Infant Resuscitation, and in Neonatal Resuscitation.
