TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS – April 30th – May 23rd, 2024 – 6:00-8:30PM ET (ONLINE)

The Mama Glow Childbirth Educator Certification Course will equip you with the education, skills, and to prepare people from all walks of life for the journey that is pregnancy, labor, childbirth and the early postnatal period.

Over the course of eight sessions in four weeks, you will be joined by other like-minded individuals in your journey to ease the transition for women, laboring people, and their families. Twice a week, your instructors will focus on a curriculum theme that emphasizes a particular dimension of childbirth education, all of which will culminate in a full toolbox and an exploration of how to utilize the training.

This year’s theme for Black Maternal Health Week is “Our Bodies Belong to Us: Restoring Black Autonomy and Joy!”

In celebration of Black Maternal Health week we are addressing the health and wellbeing of our care workers that serve along the reproductive health continuum. The pandemic led the nation’s healthcare workers to a breaking point where birth workers of all backgrounds are experiencing burnout, psychological distress, and anxiety. As we envision and design a future that centers safety, dignity and joy for Black birthing people, we must also work to support our health care workers who are on the frontlines, ensuring they have tools to thrive and provide optimal care.
