Become a Childbirth Educator
The BirthWorks Childbirth Educator Certification Program is unlike any other CBE program out there!
Would you like to help birthing parents learn what really matters to have the birth of their dreams? All women are born with the knowledge about how to give birth. Birth is instinctive and what is instinctive doesn’t need to be learned. Rather, we teach women to have more trust and faith in their body knowledge that already knows how to give birth. This is a unique and innovative approach that through the practice of human values integrates the mind, body, and spirit, helping to increase confidence and decrease fear in birth.
