LAMAZE CHILDBIRTH EDUCATOR PROGRAM –
A Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator is THE most knowledgeable of professionals teaching evidence-based information and supporting NORMAL labour. But that doesn’t happen by accident! It can also feel like one of the most challenging programs out there!
We are committed to helping our students every step of the way so they successfully complete and pass the Lamaze exam.
Whethere you’re an existing student or joining us for support, we’re here to help.
Our mentorship program includes:
A 90 minute to 2 hour Zoom call to review each module where we explore pre-assigned questions to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the module and help refine where you may need to spend more time.
We explore what people thought the answer was, while helping to clarify both the information presented in the Learning Guide, but also the context of being a CHILDBIRTH EDUCATOR with that information, teaching that information. Our discussions help to gain additional understanding, further helping prepare people for the official exam.
Our program also includes an exam simulation day as our final call together.
Calls are recorded and shared (in case you miss one), though LIVE participation is encourged to full benefit from the program.
