"Informed & Mindful Birth" Childbirth Education WOrkshop
About the Workshop
Becoming a Childbirth Educator through LIDA is a great addition to add to your childbirth services. It’s rewarding to see how in just a few classes the information you will provide empowers your students to have the birth they envision.
LIDA's "Informed and Mindful" childbirth educators will do more than just teach expectant parents about childbirth, you will be able to provide techniques to facilitate communication with their care providers, gain decision making abilities, empower them to make informed choices and put a plan in place for unexpected situations. During your LIDA childbirth educator training you will learn how to teach fun and interactive classes all while enhancing those skills.
You will also gain a full understanding of how to help your students have realistic expectations and get the safest and most appropriate birth for them. Just teaching your students about the risks of medical intervention is not the way they’ll get the birth they’d hoped for.
Students have to complete a reading list, design a class with material and handouts, audit a CBE session and teach your own session to be reviewed by LIDA administration.
At the end of the LIDA certification training you will have your own, tailor-made teaching plan, relevant to your personal preferences and style and the profile of your clients within the framework of LIDA’s “Informed and Mindful Birth” program.
The Informed and Mindful Birth Educator program will allow you to share your extensive knowledge and experience with motivated and passionate women (and their partners) in order to facilitate personal, safe and joyous; not frightening and disappointing, birth experiences.
Some of the skills Informed and Mindful Childbirth Educators will learn in order to educate their students include:
