I love Birthingway! The education is thorough and well-rounded, and we get to learn from many different midwives in the community. I love the staff and think that Rhonda can fix anything. Everyone is really supportive and fun. I feel so lucky to be a part of such a great community.

Great education, wonderful community! Not only a great place to learn to become a direct-entry midwife. (I couldn't imagine getting my education any place else) but the largest childbirth/pregnancy related library I have ever seen. So many great resources and anyone can check out books there.

I am a student at Birthingway and so very happy that I am! It is such a wonderful place to learn. If you are interested in learning about how natural birth can be, want to be trained in the most thourough, professional way, to be a direct-entry homebirth midwife, and value and want to be a part of a wonderful community, check out birthingway! They also offer classes to community members and have doula (birth and postpartum), lactation consultant, and childbirth education programs.

I attended Birthingway College of Midwifery and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Midwifery. I feel that I earned an excellent education and practical experience that prepared me to be a skilled homebirth midwife.

I attended this midwifery college many years ago and am stilled involved as an educator now. This is one of the very best midwifery schools in the country for those interested in being involved in natural childbirth, either as a midwife, doula or lactation consultant.

Many years ago I went to Birthingway's annual "So You Want To Be A Midwife?" conference. They presented a lot of information of what it takes to be a midwife, and how to know if it's really the avenue you want to pursue. I especially enjoyed the panel of midwives that included homebirth midwives and two CNM's who were attending hospital births. One of them actually became my midwife, as I found out I was pregnant shortly after attending the conference. They served yummy vegetarian food also!

Message from Birthingway College-Midwifery

We are a non-profit MEAC accredited school for Direct-Entry midwives and related professions located in Portland, Oregon. Established as Birthingway Midwifery School in March of 1993, the original purpose of the college was to train direct-entry midwives in a traditional midwifery model of care, using their intellect, senses, intuition, and judgment to integrate new medical approaches with age-old wise woman practices.

Birthingway's programs are based on the Biodynamic Model and provide a balance of textbook and empirical knowledge, along with clinical skills emphasizing low-tech methods, in an environment of respect for the physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions of pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.

Birthingway has developed a model of caring for women and families during the childbearing year and beyond. We refer to this as the Biodynamic Model, in which birth is not only a natural part of human life, but a necessary part and one that is intimately connected with what it is to be human. The ??bio? in Biodynamic reflects the model??s grounding in biological processes, while the ??dynamic? describes the power of genuine relationships based on trust. Biodynamic care is women-centered and individualized.

Biodynamic birth respects human physiology and thus advocates for the least amount of intervention while still protecting the well-being of the mother and baby. Intervention takes on different meanings depending upon the type of care provider; therefore, each of our programs develops specific tools for the various types of services our students will be providing.

Birthingway is located on the Southeast side of Portland, about one mile east of I-205 on SE Foster Road. Our two large houses offer multiple classrooms, a cozy community kitchen, a beautiful herb garden, and a wonderful library that contains an extensive collection of midwifery-related books and resources for students and community members.
