Tip #1 to become a childbirth educator – Take a Training
Take a training workshop or attend a seminar/conference for childbirth educators. Don’t wait. At the training you will be around other like minded individuals that share your same interest and passion. You can start to figure out if this is what you’re called to do…
You will be able to ask questions and explore your next steps. The training will give you the opportunity to spend time with an experienced childbirth educator and learn the ins and outs of what’s involved in teaching childbirth classes.
You can ask questions like should I work independently or be employed for a hospital? How do you begin a childbirth education business? Should I pursue certification? Can I make money as a childbirth educator?
Also, you can really learn practical teaching skills in a face to face training.
So get going…get immersed right away in your journey to become a childbirth educator. Take a childbirth educator training workshop as soon as you can.
