About Childbirth Educator Training
Becoming a Childbirth Educator (Antenatal Teacher) is a life-changing experience. It’s rewarding to see how, in just a few classes, you can change the process of birth, improve outcomes and help clients feel empowered to become the parents they want to be. CBI childbirth educators do more than just pass on information to expectant parents. At CBI, our educators understand how to teach the skills needed for making informed choices, putting a plan in place for tackling unexpected situations, gaining decision-making capabilities and the confidence to communicate these to caregivers. During your ANCC accredited online childbirth educator training, you’ll learn how to teach these skills during classes while making them fun and interactive.
Clients need more than information on the process of birth and medical interventions to have the births they hope for. As a student, you’ll develop strong communication capability, learning the critical skills of reflective practice and active listening, and learn why these are so important. You’ll also gain a full understanding of how to help clients have realistic expectations and get the birth they want – using a unique blend of skills & models developed by Childbirth International. You’ll explore a multitude of different teaching techniques, focusing on active teaching skills that eliminate the need for long and boring lecture sessions.
A ready-made curriculum is included in your course. You will also learn how to develop your own teaching plan and curriculum to suit the unique needs of your clients and your personal preferences & style. The Business of Birth module will give you the skills and knowledge to launch or grow your practice so it can meet your personal goals.
