Childbirth Education Project

Families deserve childbirth classes that are:

  • Based on evidence and best practice
  • Prepare them for birth and early parenting with confidence
  • Impart information so that it is easy to recall weeks or months later, when they need it
  • Offer resources for ongoing learning
  • Create community
  • Enjoyable to take and FUN to teach

Childbirth Education Project firmly believes the same standards hold true for our childbirth educator workshops and every Lamaze approved workshop is designed with these goals in mind.

Co-directors have more than 50 combined years of experience teaching childbirth classes, attending births and training perinatal professionals. They are committed to your success, and provide resources, encouragement and community that support you every step of the way, from when you initially register, to well into the future as you celebrate your successful career as a childbirth educator.

Our workshops, whether in person or live on Zoom, help you acquire the skills to offer amazing classes, both virtually and in person through hospital programs, as an independent educator or part of a team. Every workshop celebrates diversity and what you bring to the table and focuses on best practice for adult learners. We support you as you gain confidence, prepare for the certification exam and teach families in your community. We celebrate your victories and encourage you to stretch yourself to be the type of educator that families deserve.

From memorable learning activities, to a comprehensive workbook, to extensive resources and support, we have your back as you prepare to become a successful childbirth educator alongside other people who share the same goal. Our ongoing support continues after the workshop ends with community and learning opportunities available for our alum.

We travel to you if you are interested in hosting a workshop in your community or join us for an already scheduled Childbirth Education Project online or in person. We also provide an opportunity for midwives and midwifery students to participate in the one-day Fast Track program.
