Passion for Birth is on a mission to stomp out boring childbirth classes and we invite you to join us by taking our Passion for Birth Childbirth Educator Skills workshop Since 2002, we have trained over 3000 childbirth educators worldwide, who have gone on to share their creative and interactive teaching activities with expectant families. Our evidence based childbirth education content and adult learning principles offer you an opportunity to be recognized as an effective childbirth educator amongst your peers and in your community.
New educators, experienced educators looking to re-energize their teaching style, and health care providers all leave our workshops overflowing with exciting resources, innovative tools and a new enthusiasm for meeting families where they are.
Our 200+ page workshop workbook, valuable resource packet, access to masters and templates for dozens of class activities and innovative teaching props offer workshop attendees a plethora of resources from which to call upon in your role of childbirth educator, doula or other birth professional. You will always leave our workshops with an inspiration to “spice up” how you teach. Our goal is have ten ways to teach the same information, so that you can pick and choose effective strategies for your clientele. We build your confidence in your CBE skills, so that you can help the families you work with feel confident in their ability to have a safe and healthy birth.
Use our workshop as a springboard to becoming a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, a prerequisite for midwifery school, a refresher for those with childbirth education experience or as a source of 26 hours of continuing nursing education from the ANCC - accepted by doula and cbe organizations worldwide.
Passion for Birth recognizes that you have a choice in where you go for your childbirth educator training. Our workshop attendees have a high pass rate on the Lamaze exam, our “Passioners” (workshop facilitators) are well known leaders in the field of childbirth education and our workshops exceed the expectations of attendees time and time again. Join us and experience the magic of a Passion for Birth Childbirth Educator Skills Workshop.
In addition to the workshop, there is an on-line component that requires watching videos, posting on a group discussion board, locating evidence for common childbirth class topics and reviewing next steps to becoming Lamaze certified.
