We annually survey our graduates from the last three years (2012, 2011 and 2010). On this year's survey, no graduates reported that they were pursuing graduate or professional education. Four graduates did not respond.
Birthingway conducts surveys with graduates for three years following graduation. During spring 2013, we contacted and surveyed graduates from 2012, 2011 and 2010. 10 of 13 graduates responded to our survey. If graduates do not respond, we research their status elsewhere, such as on state licensing databases or their current, private business websites. Of all graduates surveyed:
77% of graduates are working as a midwife (10 of 13).
31% are working in a related field (4 of 13). Three of the graduates working in a related field as also working as a midwife. Types of related work include: Postpartum Doula, Childbirth or Health Education, Massage, etc.
100% of graduates are licensed in their state (13 of 13).
Birthingway calculates midwifery program cohort graduation and retention rates annually as of December 31. Please see the summary here for Midwifery program and here for Lactation Consultation program 2012 year end.
