Lamaze Childbirth Educator Training Comes To India

Posted on: April 16, 2009

Some very good news….

Over the past many months I have had many queries from aspiring Lamaze Childbirth Educators from all over India asking if we conduct any training program for Lamaze teachers. In fact some of my new mothers who have graduated from our Lamaze classes have been quite fascinated by the Lamaze Philosophy and their birth experience that they now want to become Lamaze teachers and help other expectant mothers.

Good news for all of you!! We at Healthy Mother have partnered with Douglas College, one of the foremost institutions for Lamaze Educator Training and are bringing their program to India. We will be hosting a Lamaze Teaching Skills Workshop on May 14, 15, and 16, 2009 in Hyderabad for those who want to become Officially Certified Lamaze Childbirth Educators. The workshop will be conducted by Kathleen Lindstrom, CD, CDT (DONA), LCCE, FACCE (Lamaze International) and co-taught by me. Attending such a Workshop is one of the eligibility requirements for sitting for the official Lamaze Certification examination from Lamaze International.

Kathleen is the Perinatal Program Manager, in the Faculty of Health Sciences, Douglas College, Canada and has 25 years experience in teaching prenatal classes, developing Lamaze Training Curriculum and presenting workshops. She is currently on the Board of Directors of Lamaze International. In addition, Kathleen is a DONA certified Doula and Trainer and has 28 years experience in training nursing staff about breastfeeding techniques, and working with breastfeeding families.

We will also be offering a FREE Doula Training Workshop on May 19th and 20th. I encourage everyone who is interested to register for the workshop as soon as possible as slots are very limited.

You can contact me for details about costs, and other details.

I am a certified childbirth educator (ICEA) and doula (DONA) with 25 years experience preparing couples for parenthood and will be in India in March-April of 2010. I am thinking about visiting Hyderabad and would like very much to meet you and hear about your work. Would that be possible?
