Our NEXT 2 year program cohort will begin classes July 2020, and we are enrolling students for that term very soon.

We also offer each of our courses individually which you can learn more about here.




There are a growing number of midwifery programs, but none of which we felt like we could truly endorse when asked which school students should enroll in. So here we are!  We have created and sustained what we think is currently the best program for student midwives that resonate with the Indie Birth philosophy - combining modern research with age old wisdom, with a focus on becoming heart led midwives that can truly serve the family above all else. We value student autonomy as much as client automony, and as such we have an "unschooling" approach that still provides structure and accountability for those students who want and need it.

Completely Online

With our easy and fun to use online platform you can complete all of your assignments and get high quality feedback throughout the two year program. We do have the in person option to come to one of our awesome skills workshops, which is available to students at a much lower cost than now students.

Integration of the Sacred

Becoming a midwife takes more than passing a test.  It requires deep introspection and connecting with the sacred aspects of childbearing as you understand them.  We do this at every point throughout the program.


Accountability and Structure

While traditional midwifery didn't include formal schooling, there is so much information to wade through that we think having well curated content and well paced learning is crucial in today's world. Learn more about our curriculum.

Supportive Teachers and Staff

Our staff is prompt, friendly and genuinely interested in your success.  They are here to support you whether you have technology questions or just need to talk about your path towards midwifery.  Learn more about our teachers and staff.

Enrollment Perks

Our students will get many Indie Birth perks including access to our Wise Woman Circle and complementary access to our ongoing webinar series.


We have strived to make our program affordable and accessible by keeping costs low while keeping our standards high for the school.  We also offer several full and partial scholarships each year. Learn more here.

Enrollment is open for students beginning the program in 2020.
