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 women feel empowered to become the mothers 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 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 online childbirth educator training, you’ll learn how to teach these skills during classes while making them fun and interactive.
Just teaching clients about the risks of medical intervention is not the way they’ll get the birth they’d hoped 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 in 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.
At the end of the course, you’ll have your own, tailor-made teaching plan, relevant to your personal preferences & style, and the profile of your clients. 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.
