Distance Teacher Trainings
For childbirth professionals interested in the use of meditation and mind/body method in childbirth we’ve been offering an individual teacher certification program, via Skype. The trainings have been taking place around the globe, recently in England, Dubai, Sweden, Costa Rica, and Lithuania. Robert Newman, the founder of Calm Birth®, directs these individualized workshops. You do the training at home or in another comfortable space.
The three day training schedule closely follows the group training schedule. Each day has seven class hours with an hour lunch break.
"Becoming a Calm Birth meditation teacher is a life affirming venture that will not only better the lives of those you teach but will also enrich your own. The Calm Birth team is there for their students even after training is complete. This is a living method that allows for your own creativity and grows with its practitioners."
-Erica Bouman, Divine Birthing LLC, Birth Doula and Calm Birth Teacher
First, you choose three days that work for you. If you give us two sets of proposed dates we probably won’t have trouble scheduling it. You choose a time and place for a special retreat, for your development as a teacher of childbirth meditation. If you can’t find three consecutive days, we can work something out.
Then, for the last hour of each day of training, you meet Robert or Anna on Skype to talk about the training, to help you deepen your knowledge of meditation and its use in childbirth.
The training can be for one or two people.
If your schedule does not allow for three days in a row, you may take the course over three weeks at your own pace, with weekly Skype sessions.
Qualifications: Most of the women applying to become teachers of the Calm Birth® method are childbirth professionals – labor and delivery nurses, midwives, doctors, doulas, and childbirth educators – but we will train anyone we believe could be a good teacher of childbirth meditation. And we’ll train any childbirth professional who wants to learn meditation for the sake of their health and life.
