Bastyr University's three-year Master of Science in Midwifery program trains students in all aspects of midwifery care, from preconception through pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum period for parent and newborn. It is the only Master of Science in Midwifery that is both regionally accredited and MEAC-accredited and prepares graduates to become leaders in the profession.
The rigorous, proven curriculum – based on the competencies established by the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) and the combined expertise of Bastyr University and the renowned Seattle Midwifery School – is taught by exemplary classroom and clinical faculty. Students choose between developing expertise in an independent master’s project or in botanical medicine for midwifery care.
The Master of Science in Midwifery program is intended for people who desire to serve childbearing families in the home or freestanding birth center settings. Completion of the three-year program prepares graduates to sit for examinations to become licensed as a midwife in Washington or other states, registered in Canadian provinces, and nationally certified by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).
