Passion for Birth®

Since early 2000, Passion for Birth (PfB) has been on a mission to stomp out boring childbirth education around the globe.  With an international team of trainers, Passion for Birth routinely offers programs in Canada, Romania, India, Mexico and of course all around the USA. Join us at an already scheduled workshop, or host and bring a workshop to wherever you are! We offer an easy process and lots of support if you would like to bring a workshop to your hometown.

Participating in a three day Passion for Birth workshop will leave you confident and prepared to lead dynamic, interactive childbirth classes in a hospital or independent class setting.  Our workshop attendees perform exceptionally well on the Lamaze Certification exam and join a cohort of creative and effective PfB educators who are impacting the lives of families all around the world.

During your workshop you will be exposed to and experience creative teaching ideas, unique props, and engaging activities that you can use to make your childbirth class offerings both evidence based and useful to the families in your classes.

After you have completed a Passion for Birth workshop, you will enjoy participating in social media groups both for your specific workshop and for all PfB alum.  Receive ongoing support, share ideas and troubleshoot problems as you teach classes and gain experience.

Our carefully selected trainers are all active childbirth educators and doulas – so not only can we share theory and the evidence but we also share the reality of our experiences facilitating childbirth education classes in today’s world. As doulas, we all also spend time with laboring people, we see the impact of what is taught in childbirth classes on their birth experiences.  Our team of trainers includes leaders in the field of maternal infant health, recognized as exceptional presenters, writers, bloggers, researchers and several past presidents of Lamaze International.  All of us are advocates for healthy birth!

Passion for Birth three day workshops all include filling theme snacks and delicious healthy lunches.  Our idea packed workbook and our colorful bag of “bling”, teaching props and resources that you take home will provide teaching ideas and ready to use materials far into the future. Our Passion for Birth workshops include an additional online learning module to complement in person learning.

PfB is also the only program with an approved One-day Fast Track Workshop for Midwives and Midwifery students.  With this specialized workshop, Midwives/Student Midwives can quickly prepare for Lamaze certification.   Contact us for more information about bringing this unique workshop to your area.
