What's the best midwifery program for me?

I should start off by saying that I live int he U.S., where midwifery ceritifications and degrees are somewhat more complicated than in other countries.

My big nerdy dream is to be a midwife, working in international crisis situations and refugee camps. Right now I only have an unrelated bachelor's degree. I know that for my specific goals I should be a nurse midwife, and not go the direct entry route. But where should I get my training? Would it be worth it to study abroad? I speak passable french and would love to work with medecins sans frontiers someday. Or should I get my initial training closer to home, where I can get more support from my family? Would a foreign program position me better for my future goals? I suspect the scandinavian countries would be strongly respected internationally, but I just don't know where to begin my research on this.

Thanks for your help!
