Apprenticeships are an important aspect to becoming a home birth midwife and receiving the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) credential. Therefore, many experienced home birth midwives in Austin incorporate students into their practices. I recently documented an advanced student midwife, Rachel Mattair, during a group prenatal appointment. Being in her fourth year of her apprenticeship, Rachel is now able to conduct all aspects of midwifery care under supervision. She is currently apprenticing with Genevieve Schaefer with Sisters Midwifery.
