What other Certified Sensitive Midwives have to say:
It was incredibly enriching and empowering for a midwife from a medical background. It makes me want to shout out about how to be a natural birth midwife from the rooftops! I didn't really feel I had a place as a midwife, and for me this course has created a safe, normal place for women and midwives.
– Juantia Mackenzie
I can now say, as Manager of the Eastern Cape's Maternal and Child Health programme, that becoming a Certified Sensitive Midwife is the right way to prevent complications and embrace a midwife's real role. If she does this course, she won't need to become an Advanced Midwife! I feel so empowered and ready to take this knowledge to my community when I leave public service in the near future.
– Nondi Gaba
Even as an Independent Midwife, this course taught me that the calmer the mom, the better the birth; the more respected the mother-baby postpartum bonding time, the better the postnatal adjustment will be. While I monitor and support her, I can now confidently step back and let her experience unfold.
– Michelle van der Westhuizen
The course imparted 20-30 years of Sister Lilian's wisdom, and gave me trust in natural birth, in women being built for it. I now trust that getting back to basics and making the meaning of 'midwife' – with woman – central is what is important, even as a direct-entry trained Dutch midwife. If you want to know more about real midwifery, register for this course.

How much is this going to cost?
Well, consider this.

If we look at the cost of ongoing education. What does it cost to further your studies, doing a post-basic education? I conveniently forgot what I paid for my masters and my PhD...

But you can fill it in...

And then there is the cost of travelling to classes and even perhaps the cost of losing your job as they might not want to release you for your studies.

I did the long detour myself, and of course I learned heaps in the process.

But it cost me lots and lots of time and money.

Knowing what I know now, is that what midwives really need more than anything else, is to truly understand and know how to facilitate natural, normal birthing, THE SENSITIVE MIDWIFE WAY!

I want to provide you the short cut, to get straight to that goal.

Remember, we can handle 85-90% of women if we can get it right! And that is why I want you to journey with me for the next five months.

So when you decide to enrol in this, choose the Sensitive Midwife-Way Approach that you've heard me talk about, you can get access to everything that I just mentioned on this page for just one payment of R8 500.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! This course is designed for qualified Midwives and will be building on the base knowledge you have already. It will deal with all those matters you don't find in the text books.
What if I can’t pay everything at once?
We understand that it might be a stretch to pay the full tuition fee in one payment which is why we have a convenient payment plan which means you can get started today for just R1,700.
When are we starting this course and how long will it take?

We will be starting on Tuesday, 6 July 2021 with a live lecture from 1–2pm. If you can't make it then, you can view the lecture in your own time.

It would be best to watch the lecture live on Tuesday, or within a couple of days, as we are doing a live Q&A on Thursday, 8 July 2021 from 7–8pm. You can submit your questions to me beforehand or engage with me during the live Q&A. This discussion will also be available to view afterwards, should you have to miss the live session and/or you want to brush up on this topic at a later stage.

This will be the format for the entire course, made up of five modules with four sessions each. This amounts to five months, with a weekly hour-long lecture and subsequent Q&A session.

Can I do the course at my own time and or pace?
Yes of course. All the lesson replays and course downloads will be available in our members portal. We do however recommend that you do the course live with us as that will be how you will get the most value. However, if that is not possible for you, you can definitely do the course at your own pace.
Will there be any homework or assignments?
There will be a monthly project and test for you to do. If you have done all of them satisfactorily, you will be a Certified Sensitive Midwife by the end of the journey!
Will I get a Certification at the end of the course?
If you finish all the homework and assignments, yes, you will become a Certified Sensitive Midwife and will get a certificate as well as 15 Sensitive Midwifery Points. Sensitive Midwifery Academy is in the process of seeking registration as a CPD provider. In the meanwhile, the Academy has an internal evaluation system for earning on-going Sensitive Midwifery points (SMPs), which we record and keep track of, and provide certification for.
