Course outline

Calmbirth® Educator training occurs annually in a different state within Australia. It takes place over 5 months and consists of three modules. 

Due to the uncertainties of COVID -19 and the impact it will have on several other industries such as travel and accommodation, one thing is for certain, and that’s the Calmbirth Educator Training 2020 will be going ahead via ZOOM in September this year!

Calmbirth® Educators are expected to achieve a high standard of excellence during their training and to maintain their quality of practice thereafter. 

“What an inspiring, mind changing and absolutely filled with knowledge journey it has been becoming part of the Calmbirth ‘family’. Each of the different components of the program was really well structured, very professionally organised and beautifully presented. Over the years I have heard so many times from the couples attending the Calmbirth program how they came away from it with so much knowledge, confidence and even a bit life changed!

Doing the educator training and being able to dig deeper into that knowledge has allowed me to gain so much more insight into topics anywhere from our bodies, our relationships, to teaching and facilitating skills, to even a much better understanding of integrative medicine. I can only highly recommend this training and joining the Calmbirth family.”
