I would like to state that the certification process that I have gone through in the last eight weeks has been an amazing journey of in-depth learning. This has provided me the following statements to share:
1) I have been taken through a mirrored reflection journey of the “knowledge” I already knew over many years, yet there has been a vast of new understandings and perspectives I have gained.
2) I have been provided a series of newly gained “knowledge” and can now apply this practical knowledge of the birthing basics into my current classes that I teach.
3) Most importantly, I have been able to take the steps of not only creating, but identifying a Childbirth Education Philosophy statement that has been a part of my childbirth educator journey for many years. I call this my “Childbirth Education Mission Statement”, which is to work collaboratively with customer owners to provide childbirth education options and decisions for their individual family needs.
With the knowledge I have gained and the educational journey I have completed in this certificate program, I am excited to implement the additional knowledge into the childbirth classes that I teach. I am honored to have been a part of the Childbirth Professionals International – Childbirth Educator Certification Program and look forward to working further on other certifications offered.
