student birth educator

Now you will bring all the tasks that you have completed together in the final task of teaching your very own childbirth class.

This class will be evaluated by an experienced childbirth educator. The educator can be trained by any organization as long as they have been teaching childbirth 18 months or longer.

The class design can be whatever you decide works best for your students. It should meet at least 3 times for 2 hours per class. So for example every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:00 pm for 3 weeks.

If you have other ideas for your class just let us know.
