Pacific Birth Institute

– Birth Assistant Training Program –

We bring safe maternity care training into the homes of students across the world who are the next generation of home and birth center providers.

Right now, the United States is one of the wealthiest countries and yet it has some of the worst maternal and neonatal outcomes in the developed world. At the Pacific Birth Institute, we are committed to reducing the impact of the maternal mortality and physician crises on families by training the future community nurse and professional midwives and birth assistants in the safe and evidence-based routine and complication care management of community birth now. It is our mission to reduce mortality in birth in the USA by championing the training and education of 100,000 Professional Birth Assistants (Pro BAs) by 2050 to safely welcome the influx of families choosing to give birth out of the hospital.


In honor of the 2022 Midwifery Wisdom Experience hosting Jess as a speaker and presenter, PBI is extending all MWC fans and conference attendees a huge discount on Pro BA tuition through November 19th, 2022 by slashing the price sitewide. No codes necessary to enjoy the midwifery love this month. Just toss the Pro BA Course payment plan you prefer on the Thinkific checkout page into your cart and the price you see is the discounted price of more than 50% (tuition returns to $3,000+ on November 20, 2022).

We are grateful to the Midwifery Wisdom Collective, Augustine Colebrook, and all the shining midwives who serve daily in every capacity. Happy November everyone from Jess and Jenn. Now go gobble up some Pro BA curriculum spots while they last!
