Weight Gain The Maternity Center in El Paso was founded in 1976 by Shari Daniels. She directed its operations and midwifery programs until 1986. This was the first direct entry midwifery curriculum offered in the United States. The midwifery training program graduated in excess of 400 midwives who are in practice all over the world. Her efforts on the behalf of the Maternity Center in El Paso were recognized in 1992 with a special award of achievement by the Midwives Alliance of North America.

International School of Midwifery Mission and Philosophy
Weight Gain The International School of Midwifery has a mission to uphold excellence in Midwifery education so those with a calling may learn to minister the highest standards of care in the tradition of our foremothers. We offer students a program designed to prepare them with the essential skills and knowledge necessary to allow them to practice in the Birth Support system as either a Midwifery Assistant, or a Licensed Midwife according to the laws of the State of Florida. Our graduates will go on to provide quality care to pregnant and birthing women The International School of Midwifery recognizes the necessity for students to be trained in a variety of educational environments and wishes to meet their needs in a private institution conceived and administered by midwives. The art and science of midwifery is best taught by those active in its practice or who support the profession that midwifery is a vocation to be honored in its own right and not the practice of medicine (though all students will learn the importance of collaborative care with physicians). We believe that our profession offers the most appropriate care for pregnant and birthing women. Read More...
