Birthwise is located in Bridgton, Maine
Birthwise Midwifery School campus is located in the small town of Bridgton, Maine. The campus is an hour northwest of Portland, Maine — the state’s urban hub, a port city on Casco Bay — and half an hour east of the White Mountains in New Hampshire — a popular destination for hikers, climbers, skiers, and snowboarders.
The town is home to Shawnee Peak Ski Area, a ski resort ten minutes from campus. The greater Lakes Region, encompassing Bridgton, Naples, Casco, and Sebago, has lakes, rivers and a vast network of public trails and beaches, including Sebago Lake State Park.
Downtown Bridgton has a thriving independent bookstore, a small collection of coffee shops, a movie theater, a drive-in theater, several restaurants, a Reny’s department store, the Lakes Environmental Association and the sprawling Pondicherry Park.
Both Campus Option and Community Option students spend at least some time in Bridgton.

Birthwise Midwifery School Campus
Birthwise’s tree-filled campus is located on the west side of Bridgton in the red brick buildings of the Historic Samuel Andrews Mansion. The historical colonial building, built in 1845, includes offices, classrooms, a student lounge and a Birthwise family kitchen.
Both Campus Option and Community Option students spend time on our beautiful campus.
The Birth House Wing
In 2006, we added a cedar-sided attached wing for The Birth House and Birthwise Community Clinic. Students have easy access to our onsite freestanding birth center and student-run clinic.
The Birthwise Library, which includes texts for both midwifery clients and students, is located directly below The Birth House. Check out our library collection.
The Carriage House
The Carriage House, where the Andrews family kept their carriages and horses for almost a century, is now a large pine-paneled classroom. We use it for classes, workshops and events.
