Out-Of-The-Box Childbirth Ed - Yes!
I was just a guest on a fabulous new internet TV show called "Bring Birth Home TV". On it I talk about the play "Birth", BOLD's new Birth Change Campaign, and my new birth worker certification program.
I've been thinking alot about childbirth education lately and become more convinced that we've got to be offering more out-of-the-box teaching tools for pregnant moms that move them to own their birth experiences. To me, out-of-the-box, multi-sensory teaching is the next wave of childbirth education. We can no longer just fill our MINDS up with information. We must also fill up our HEARTS & SOULS because this is what take us to our true self and moves us to action. And when we make birth decisions from our true self, when we birth in our true self, that's an empowered birth.
My newly trained birth facilitators are having great results with the pregnant moms they work with and I think this is why. My certification program is out-of-the-box - perfect to teach on it's own and great to sprinkle into traditional childbirth education (which definitely has its place and should not just go away!).
