How are you illustrating pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and postpartum to those you teach? Do you show your clients a range of emotion? Don’t forget that affective domain of learning. Capture their feelings. Grab hold of their hearts.
You are making a difference. Your work as Childbirth Educators, Birth Doulas, and Postpartum Doulas is changing the world and improving birth outcomes for all families. Thank you.
We’re excited to announce our 2020 Conference will be held on 5-8 November 2020! Mark your calendars and make sure you don’t miss it. Information about registration, hotel, and exhibit space will be released at a later date.
When I visit someone’s home or office, one of the first things I notice are the books. Books tell you not only a person’s interest, but their range of interests. They may appear worn because they are well-read or perhaps because they are a treasured gift or remembrance from someone special.
The world needs more Childbirth Educators, Birth Doulas, and Postpartum Doulas who value compassion, collaboration, and choice. Help us raise $2,020 for the ICEA Scholarship Program.
Help spread the legacy of ICEA throughout the world. Donate now to our scholarship fund and give the gift of certification.
Many of your efforts may be unseen by others, but I am reminded of the old saying, “Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.” Small acts of kindness, seen or unseen, can make a tremendous difference. Thank you for the work you do.
We hope you’ll join us next week for our Annual Meeting on 21 October 2019 at 2:00 PM ET. This meeting will be held via webinar and the board will discuss updates from this year.
Supporting new families can take place in a variety of ways and occur in a variety of venues. Diversifying how and where we teach and serve will improve our harvest – a well-educated population that results in improved birth practices and outcomes.
ICEA is committed to supporting you as you support others. The work you do is vitally important. As you make a difference in the lives of each family, you make a difference in this world.
The International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA) is a professional organization that supports educators and health care professionals who believe in freedom to make decisions based on knowledge of alternatives in family-centered maternity and newborn care.
