Coaching for Pregnancy and Birth was originally designed as a continuing education course for trained birth professionals. However, we got many requests from health and wellness coaches, and others interested in becoming pregnant and birth coaches, to join the course with no prior education or training in the field of birth support.
As a coach, your primary role is helping your clients become more in touch with their own intuition and confidence that they have the resources within themselves to go through the journey of pregnancy and birth. The scope of practice illustrates that regular information sharing is not coaching, but that some information can be shared when it is in the client’s best interest. The scope of the coaching practice highlights that if a coach holds active and nationally recognized credentials in the field in which they practice, they may provide expert guidance related to that topic.
If you are not trained, we would like to guarantee that you have enough background to understand the major dilemmas, fears, concerns and challenges your clients might encounter throughout the journey of pregnancy and birth. Therefore, we have created this prerequisites program which will introduce you to these.
These are the classes you’ll learn in this pre-requisite program:
- The Physiology and Anatomy of Childbirth
- Prenatal Care and Common Complications in Pregnancy
- The Most Common Medical Interventions in L&D for Birth Doulas and Childbirth Educators
- Stages and Phases of Labor
- Labor Support Tools Series
- Physiological and Emotional Changes in Postpartum
