Babywearing Educator Certificate Course
June 18 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT$250.00
Six Module Online Workshop: Babywearing Educator Certificate Program
Modern medicine is now recognizing, and proving through research, that the traditional and intuitive actions of keeping a baby close to a parent or caregiver is important and beneficial; compared to not carrying our babies. Using a baby carrier on our bodies is an excellent way to keep the baby close and is the safest place for the baby to be.
Taught by Rebecca Grove, postpartum doula and babywearing educator!
The course is 6 weeks self-paced with a mandatory webinar at the end of the 6 weeks.
Tailored to professionals in the birthing community* who work with pregnant people or families with a baby, but is open to anyone interested in a deeper dive into the babywearing world. This is an online course on how to use baby carriers on oneself, as well as to teach others to use baby carriers on their body. You will learn, not only about how to use 6 different styles of modern carriers safely but the history of babywearing, cultural considerations, and why babywearing is valuable for both baby and caregiver.
*Professionals in the birthing community = Doulas: labour and postpartum, midwives, nurses, doctors, social workers, ECEs, parents and caregivers.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the module quizzes, webinar attendance and 3 assignments.
Because “Babywearing Educator” is not a regulated profession, this is not a certification course, but an education course gaining a certificate of knowledge learned. It is strongly recommended for your own liability to buy insurance to teach babywearing. If you have professional insurance with your current insurance carrier, let your insurer know, and often, Babywearing Educator can be added to your coverage for no added fee.
Participants will have access to a private Facebook group for instructor and peer support. Assignments can be shared in the group.
Assignments are due no later than 2 weeks after the webinar date. Rebecca will give you the specific deadline at the time of registration.
