Distance CEUs

One of MEAC’s roles is to evaluate and approve distance continuing education (CE) for midwives and other women’s health care providers. Program sponsors who receive MEAC approval for continuing education programs then award continuing education units (CEU’s) or contact hours to participants. Following is a listing of all current Distance Continuing Education opportunities that have been approved by MEAC. Maintain and build on your skills and knowledge as a midwife and receive MEAC continuing education credits at the same time-all from the comfort of your own home!

No More Kegels

This course was developed in response to skyrocketing rates of occurrence of Pelvic Floor Disorder, in an effort to bring the education and treatment of PFD in line with the science, which currently it is not, which is the reason the problem continues to get worse. Most literature on PFD gives some if not most of the blame for PFD on pregnancy and childbirth, despite the data that shows PFD rates to be equal among women who have never had children.

The Wisdom of the Thirteen Moons

The Wisdom of the Thirteen Moons was created to help midwives that are already working and those aspiring to become midwives to learn traditional ways of working with natural modalities instead of working with pharmaceutical drugs and ultra sounds in birth. The Wisdom Series will be specifically dealing with many situations that experienced midwives face and give a more traditional approach to dealing with them. Dealing with the overall health of the pregnant woman, bleeding after birth and more importantly, avoiding it in the first place.
