Happy New Year from Birth Boot Camp!
As we look back on 2012, we saw an exciting year of growth and have much to be grateful for.Â Birth Boot Camp launched in March of 2012 under the direction of our founder, Donna Ryan, and our Advisory Board.Â We started offering the first, full series of professionally filmed, streaming online childbirth education classes.Â Our online and in-person classes have now been taken all over the country, and even in other countries.
In June, we did our first training for childbirth educators in Dallas, Texas.Â We had a wonderful group of birth professionals that included a midwife, some doulas, a massage therapist and an amazing lactation consultant.Â We had a great time and learned a lot.
This summer, Donna met with Gail Tully of Spinning Babies.Â We are honored to have Gail's Belly Mapping represented in our Field Manual (student workbook).
September brought another instructor training workshop and added teachers all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth area along with a few in Oklahoma.
We are so grateful for all the people who have reached out and helped us share the news of Birth Boot Camp with the world!
Another fabulous instructor training workshop was held in November. New instructors were sent all over the country; to Washington, Utah, Oregon, California, Oklahoma and more locations in Texas.Â It was so much fun and incredibly flattering to see all those women put their faith in us and take the leap with Birth Boot Camp.
We have had over 150 students take our live and online classes in 2012 (21 different states and 6 countries!) and we know that 2013 will be even better!Â Three instructor training workshops are scheduled and filling up quickly.
Thank you all who have been involved in this first fabulous year at Birth Boot Camp. We are honored to be a growing force for good in the birth world.Â We look forward to serving you for many more years to come.
