What is the Value of

Cross-Certifying with BirthWorks?

Are you trained as a birth or postpartum doula, or childbirth educator, with another organization, and feel something is missing? (Maybe you “tiptoe” at a hospital birth, or parents you serve need more than info on stages of labor and interventions/risks/benefits?) Maybe you feel there are more compassionate, effective ways to do postpartum care?
