Birth Boot Camp Childbirth Instructor Training

Birth Boot Camp Childbirth Instructor Training, October, 2014

We just finished up our 10th (!!!) natural childbirth instructor training for Birth Boot Camp. It is hard to believe that we have achieved this milestone. Here are some highlights from our most recent training in Dallas/Fort Worth Texas.

This picture shows our instructors geared up and ready to go. The first part of training consists of introductions and learning from Birth Boot Camp founder, Donna Ryan and trainer, Sarah Clark, about how to help couples prepare for a natural birth.

Training isn’t just sitting in chairs though. Below you see all our instructors practicing relaxation. Relaxation training is such an important part of birth that we don’t just talk to our instructors about it, we make sure the have the opportunity to practice and put it into action.

The last evening of training revolves around teaching topics! Each instructor receives a topic that they present to the group. Admittedly this scares the heck out of most of us, but sitting together and taking the opportunity to practice teaching birth related topics is one of our favorite parts of training. And, since we have each instructor evaluate us, we know it is one of their favorite parts too! Each and every one will leave confident in her ability to communicate and instruct their future couples.

Ebon’nae was a bit of an overachiever. She wrote an entire poem about her topic and presented it to the group. These ladies always impress!

Instructor Stephanie made up her own mnemonic to help dads remember how to handle labor with grace. Impressive!

Jillian was one of the most energetic and fun instructors we have met. Her students are in for a good time!

Training wraps up with some professional head shots. Whooo, aren’t they gorgeous?! Each of our childbirth instructors is listed on our website and we make sure they all get a professional head shot right next to their bio and location. Not only does this streamline our organization, but gives you something to use as you go off to promote yourself and fill your classes.

As you can see, they kept taking pictures even after their head shots were done. We love how close these educators are by the end of training. It is wonderful to spend time with women you share a passion for birth with!

These ladies were sisters-in-law and attended training together. We love it when childbirth education is a family affair!
