Mainstream maternity services are currently overstretched, and many people are not receiving good quality care, often leading to ongoing trauma. As experienced birth practitioners, the course leaders understand how a poor birth experience can have negative outcomes for the whole family, and aim to reduce the leading cause of maternal death, which is suicide in the postnatal period. Studies have shown that continuity of care greatly reduces the need for medical intervention and improves outcomes for mothers and babies, but most care models are not in a position to implement a continuity model.
The Artemis Birth Attendant Academy offers training to fill the gaps in care not provided in the mainstream, allowing women and families to make truly informed choices about their care and feel understood and listened to. Birth is a natural process that occasionally requires medical intervention, not a medical process that occasionally happens naturally. Trauma from a poor birth experience is sadly commonplace and can have long-term negative effects on whole families.
Once trained, you will be in an excellent position to support natural birth and build your own successful business, with ongoing mentorship and support. The access fund ensures that low-income families have access to the care they deserve. Positive birth experiences lead to healthy children and families. Join the childbirth revolution and become a birth attendant through the Artemis Birth Attendant Academy.
