Missouri Midwives Association offers many educational opportunities for MMA members and non-members. An educational focus is held during each of our bi-monthly meetings, and a three-day educational retreat is held once each year. Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Training and Neonatal Resuscitation Certification Training (NRP) are offered in alternate years at the annual retreat. See our calendar of events for information about meeting and retreat dates.
Those who attend these educational workshops will receive a certificate of attendance that can be used toward continuing education units (CEUs) for re-certification, if applicable.
