PIE! Posted September 9, 2012 Share Posted September 9, 2012 I'm always amazed at how much the hive knows. DH hasn't had much luck finding an answer to a question, so I thought I'd see if the Hive can. DH is almost done with medical residency. He's a family physician who has been trained in all sorts of things so he'll be able to help fill the needs of rural America. He's perfectly comfortable delivering babies in a hospital - but he was wondering about getting training for home birth. He hasn't been able to find where a doctor would go to learn the procedures for home birth. Our state doesn't allow midwives to attend home births - so the midwives he knows at the hospital don't really know much about resources available. So - do any of you know if there is such a thing as a midwifery for doctors course somewhere? I should probably add that we aren't sure how much he would use this skill. We don't know yet what the demand for home birth is wherever he ends up practicing. He'd still prefer to deliver in the hospital, but he'd like to know how home birth works anyway. He's not against home birth at all, and is curious if he could get some training in case he ever has patients who are set on a home birth, even if it's just is own wife :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
