Midwives like to educate. We teach our clients, mentor newly practicing midwives, and help students and apprentices learn midwifery. Being an effective educator and administering a successful school require additional specific knowledge, skills, resources and support – and that’s AME’s role.

AME welcomes all midwifery educators, schools and institutions – whether accredited or not. If you have students in your midwifery practice, teach in a classroom or online, help manage a school, if you want to help birth the midwives of tomorrow, we need you!
