CONTENT OF THE TRAINING

This is a birth educator training unlike any other – offering you unique practical skills to help awaken the instincts for birthing that all women have. It is primarily about birthing with the body and learning how to empower parents to trust in their innate ability to do this though experiential group work.

Included in this is a convincing, research based and eye-opening way of teaching the birth process.  As parents learn about the wonderful physiology of birth, you will see fear and anxiety turn to confidence. You will discover new ways  of demonstrating the baby’s journey through the bones of the pelvis and the involuntary functions of the uterus. Learn about cutting edge topics such as the hormonal and microbial physiology and the value of the placental transfusion and how these can be taught to parents in simple, engaging ways.

ENDING

The course content includes a complete overview of the physiology of the birth process and learning to teach this to parents n the format of a practical Active Birth Workshop. This can be taught as a one day workshop or in separate sessions. Between sessions you will be planning content of your workshops with our guidance so that you have a template to work from, by the end of the training.

It is also possible to use what you learn to fit into an existing programme of antenatal classes, to be taught as individual sessions or as a CPD for midwives and doulas to update yourself and to convey this information to parents before or during the birth.

You will also learn to be work with couples and partners who usually find these workshops very inspiring often comment that they were the best preparation they did.

Isn’t the human body marvellous! Now I know how it works and how I can support my partner I’m really looking forward to being there. I can’t wait to be a father and to see my baby!
