Event description

Description

Are you interested in birth? Would you like to teach Lamaze Childbirth Education classes to expectant families? Whether or not you have experience in birth work, this seminar is for you. Become an educator with an internationally respected organization. Lamaze educators work independently or in hospitals and birth centers.

For nearly 50 years, Lamaze International has been the leading provider of childbirth certification education programs fostering healthy birth practices and preparing educators to teach with skill and confidence. Certification by Lamaze International is the most respected and recognized credential in childbirth education certification.

Learning from years of research and observing women’s experience of normal, natural birth has provided evidence that gradually but dramatically changed Lamaze from being a method for giving birth to an evidence-based approach that provides the foundation and direction for women as they prepare to give birth and become mothers. Lamaze education and practices are based on the best and most current medical evidence available. The
Lamaze Six Healthy Birth Practices are tried and true ways to teach parents how to have a safe and healthy birth. Our vision is “knowledgeable parents making informed decisions.”

The Lamaze childbirth education certification is the only childbirth educator program that has passed the rigorous standards set by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). The program has been designed to meet the highest professional standards, with quality offerings that will help you develop as a skilled, trusted LCCE.


Who should attend?
Our target audience includes doulas, nurses, doctors, midwives, massage therapists, and any other professional who wants to educate women and their families on the importance of healthy birth practices.
