It used to be that the only way to train as a birth worker was in person. This made sense because there are some things that you can learn and practice (i.e., comfort measures) easier in person than from a book. 

Now though, with all the various technological tools at our disposal, distance learning via online programs rival in-person trainings – especially when you go through Birth Beautifully’s extensive programs. 

Let’s go over some of the great advantages to doing online trainings through Birth Beautifully. 

Your schedule and location

This is probably one of the top motivators for people who choose Birth Beautifully’s online trainings. Once registered, you have instant access to the entire training program, whether it be to certify as a birth doula, childbirth educator, or placenta encapsulation specialist. You can complete the training as quickly as you are able, but have the luxury of working on it as your own situation and circumstances allow. This is a great way to take your dream of becoming a birth worker to reality. 

No matter where in the world you live, you can complete our certification programs through our online trainings. Many of our certified birth workers are even from other countries! 

Ability to review

As you go through each video module, you can easily “rewind” and review things as needed. Your training course manual has a wealth of information as well, and you have access to everything in the training course even after completion. This allows you to “brush up” on skills and information when you encounter a client with a specific situation, or just to refresh your memory. 

Access to trainers

Once you’ve completed the course, you also have access to one of Birth Beautifully’s trainers. This 30-minute coaching call can be helpful for specific questions as you start your career as a birth worker. Seasoned doulas who have previously trained with other organizations especially appreciate this perk because Birth Beautifully trainers bring fresh, reliable, and business-savvy knowledge to their students and clients. 

In person later? 

If you’ve completed one of Birth Beautifully’s online training programs, you are welcome to attend an in person training (for a small fee) at a later date if one comes to your area. It can be a great energizer for you and you can connect with other professionals.  

We’re ready, are you? 

What are you waiting for? If you’ve already done one of our online training programs, consider expanding your business’ services by completing another training. We make it easy to become the confident, respected, professional birth worker everyone wants to hire!
