The elective workshop courses (i.e Holistic Support, Postpartum Topics, etc) in your online login are optional and are not a part of the core learning materials purchased.  DTC have recently added these as a way to encourage ongoing and further learning as a birth worker. Persons interested in using these materials for their EUs may do so but are encouraged to seek learning opportunities outside DTC on topics that they feel are relevant to their community or goals.  

Note:  This workshop materials (optional) is scheduled to be audited in 2021, and in accordance with feedback from our membership.  At the moment it may not reflect the inclusive and representative language or images that are outlined in our Equity-Diversity-Inclusion curriculum checklist (2020) and EDI Action Plan (2020).  The staff at DTC appreciate your feedback or communication about any materials concerns or issues that may arise.  Please email your comments or questions to

Thank you and we wish you a safe learning journey –
