Online Midwives Responding to Disasters Reviews


As someone who has desired to work overseas for most of my life, this course was invaluable. Often, I feel it is difficult to know where to start and how to prepare for serving in a disaster area. This course gives concrete information on preparation. The course is taught by experienced midwives who have spent time working in disasters, giving personal stories as well. Vicki does an excellent job in discussing the elements of disaster, the midwife's role, as well as how disaster response should be initiated. After taking this course, I had a good idea of what preparatory equipment and classes I wish to attain in order to better prepare myself. Thank you to Vicki and everyone at Mercy In Action for sharing your wealth of knowledge and expertise!
