Doula and Midwife Schools
A unique and necessary school in Colombia
In Mujeres Bachué we understand that midwifing goes beyond giving birth. Midwifing is the art of taking care. In the world we live in, with the systems we have, we have forgotten how to take care. It is urgent that we learn again how to do this, how to accompany each other in every moment of our lives. This formation will prepare you to do this, to take care of the seed woman are carrying now and to learn how to take care of all their bodies.
Mujeres Bachué has been leading the traditional midwifing practice in Colombia for more than two decades. After walking this path we decided to create this formation process to guarantee the continuity of the midwifing legacy as an option of attention and accompaniment of pregnancy, birth, and post partum processes, that is safe and respectful.
It’s a unique school as it understands deeply the incidence respectful birth has in woman, and thus the roles of midwifes in our society as active agents of change, weaving together traditional knowledge and modern medicine.
There is no specific formation required to enroll in the school. It is essential to have great interest and commitment to form with integrity to accompany families in their processes involved with pregnancy and mourning. Also, being fully convinced to accompany through all these stages with safety and respect from a rights perspective.
Our program has 3 levels that are developed in 6 semesters. The doula program goes through the first 3 semesters and the midwife is the whole 3 years. Every theme has a theory and practice component, constantly going in between traditional and ancestral knowledge from indigenous communities in Colombia and contemporary knowledge. This weave has been shaped according to the directions of the Global standards from the International Confederation of Midwifes (ICM).
