BLACK SISTERS BIRTH ACADEMY®
ONLINE BIRTH ASSISTANT PROGRAM

BSBA ONLINE BIRTH ASSISTANT
You don't become an amazing birth assistant overnight. It take time and experience.

However, with my program, focus skill development and group coaching to keep you accountable you will get faster results to prepare you to work with community midwives and our birthing families than you would on your own. 

 

Black Sisters Birth Academy® Online Birth Assistant Program is an online curriculum-based birth assistant program designed for aspiring Black midwives and aspiring Black birth assistants that need a predictable program to get them working competently and confidently as a birth assistant within 6 months or less.

Most of my students in this program are either looking for a nurturing environment to develop their skill set with likeminded women who look like them and a place to call home to build community and network with other birth workers.

 

This program takes the guesswork out of birth work and provides you an advantage on becoming a competent birth assistant on your pathway to becoming a midwife for those preparing to take that next step.

Be a Black woman, 18 years old or older.

Black Sisters Birth Academy Birth Assistant training was the solution. The training was absolutely phenomenal. I am the only Black working birth assistant here in Kentucky. My results were A1. I was able to break all the barriers.

It was important for me to take a Birth Assistant training with women that looked like me. Since taking the training I have completed all my requirements in order to sit for NARM and I plan on sitting for NARM to becoming a CPM.
