Childbirth Education Certification

As birth workers we are a witness to birth as it is. We know that there is work that needs to be done to create safe spaces for birthers. It is a disservice to our clients to teach how we would like birth to be without empowering them with the information of the current birth climate. We set out to create a CBE program that not only provides our clients with this information but uncovers the source of fear we take into the birthing room. We firmly believe that by understanding the biology of fear and the perception of pain, we can create better and more positive outcomes for participants in our CBE class – where does this fear come from and what does it negatively do to the birth experience?

You will have the skills needed to facilitate open conversations around the fear of birth, as well as the tools needed to build confidence and support your clients in finding their voice.  It’s a multi-modality approach, bringing tools from mindfulness, social science, and coaching to move the birthing body into the relaxation response for a safer and easier birth.

You will learn the international best practices versus what is the birth practice/culture within our current healthcare systems – this will arm birthing people with the critical information needed to navigate a birth with true informed consent. Our goal is to show you how to prepare your clients for birth as it is while we work together to pave the way for birth as it could be!

This CBE program includes a full 6-week outline that is ready to teach with the freedom to customize the program to fit your unique expertise, style and brand.

Why we created this CBE:

You asked for it. We built it. After years of requests we created a program that pulls together the very best elements of our own personal CBE classes and experiences. With a diverse team of Instructors, all bringing their unique expertise, we were able to create a program that will change how people learn about birth.

This program does more than teach the stages and phases of labour, it provides the information that your participants REALLY want to know (such as ‘will I tear’ and ‘will my relationship survive’) and presents it in a way that is not only fun, but includes all learning styles.

With all the terrifying images and horrific birth stories we have grown accustomed to, we want you to create the possibility of a positive birth experience for your participants!

Best part of teaching CBE classes?! You build trust around you and your brand so you can get doula clients from your class participants – they will want to hire you after falling in love with you and your awesome program!
