Childbirth Educator Workshop
Childbirth Educator Workshop
Are you interested in a career in childbirth education?
Are you a midwifery student looking to complete your childbirth educator workshop component? Are you a current birth professional or nurse seeking continuing education credits? Come spend a weekend in historic Downtown Tacoma and take part in an International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA) Professional Childbirth Educator.
My standard workshop runs on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday from 8am-5:30pm each day (with an hour lunch on your own both Saturday and Sunday) If you choose to add on the Life After Baby Professional Workshop, that workshop runs on the Monday following the Childbirth Educator Workshop from 11am-4pm.
I also take requests for different formats to meet individual schedules. If none of the listed dates work for you, or if you need a different format, please contact me and we'll see if we can work out something to fit YOUR schedule.
These workshops can often fill quickly. Please consider registering early for the class you want. If you are unable to pay the full registration fee, please contact me for a payment plan. Paying the non-refundable deposit amount will hold your spot in the workshop of your choice.
My workshops meet the training requirements towards certification as an ICEA Certified Professional Childbirth Educator and Birth Doula (Click on the ICEA logo above to find out more about ICEA and to get more information about the various paths towards certification as an ICEA Professional Childbirth Educator and/or Birth Doula). If you are currently certified through ICEA and looking for continuing education credits, both workshops provide you ALL 24 credit hours needed towards recertification. Additionally, the workshops are approved for 16 nursing contact hours and 16 R-CERPs.
I am both a certified childbirth educator and birth doula trainer through ICEA and have over 16 years of experience in the field of childbirth. I bring with me both an expansive knowledge of the professional field of birth doulas and childbirth education as well as a strong sense of humor, which makes the workshop weekends both educational and fun!
The Professional Childbirth Educator workshop is 16 hours and incorporates topics such as informed decision making, evidence-based teaching, how to develop a curriculum, the process of labor, potential labor complications, coping skills, as well as information on newborns, breastfeeding and the postpartum period and skills on how to teach all of the above topics and MORE!
If it would be helpful to have a payment plan, please contact me directly to arrange payments. I also offer a discount on the Childbirth Educator and Tacoma Birth Doula workshops for military families. Additionally, I offer discounts to midwifery students looking to complete a Professional Childbirth Educator and/or Birth Doula workshop (in Tacoma) which may be required by some midwifery school programs.
This option is to pay your workshop in full. There is a $75 discount if you register 3 weeks or more prior to the workshop which makes the workshop price $525.00. You will see the sale price on any workshop that is still 3 or more weeks out. $150 of the standard workshop fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. $225 is non-refundable if choosing both the Childbirth Educator and Life After Baby Professional Workshops. The remaining amount is refundable up to three weeks prior to the first day of the workshop for which you registered. After that time, there are no refunds available.
In addition to above workshops, if you are interested in hosting a workshop in your area and need a certified trainer, please feel free to contact me to discuss the potential of me traveling to your location to provide a workshop.
And always feel free to contact me directly for more information about any of the above!
