About the workshop: Innovative and Empowering Childbirth Education Strategies
Those of us working in this birth world often feel astounded by obstetrical trends that seem to go against a woman’s intuition of what’s best for her and her baby.
The essence of what we do is more about awakening our pregnant couples to a deeper sense of knowing what decisions feel right for them and then modeling ways to communicate and negotiate these priorities with healthcare providers.
We are no longer just information givers. We are facilitators of a new consciousness. And the perfect space to broaden our internal worldview, is the one we create during our time together in the course.
The PREVIDA Foundation offers a two-day Workshop that provides many possibilities for professionals to feel motivated and inspired to use new methods that empower pregnant ladies or couples to help them find their voice. Stringing together the conceptualization of birth as more than a physiological experience, this workshop unifies emotional and intuitive meaning into each topic, using practical strategies to deepen the learning process.
A certificate of completion of the workshop is given to all participants.
The workshop will:
* Demonstrate the key areas of the PREVIDA Method that integrate new knowledge about pregnancy, birth and early parenthood with teaching styles that go beyond information giving. The method provides opportunities for reflection, clarity and conviction. These teaching strategies are cognitive, affective and physical, as well as spiritual, bringing them all into balance.
* Provide examples of transmitting practical information of value but in shorter periods of time, since many modern couples prefer intensive preparation courses of 12 hours or less.
* Bring your attention to many interesting trends and methodologies in today’s international birth world, so we can be inspired by these creative advances in our field.
* Bring into the modern era, preparation courses that reflect the way our pregnant couples prefer to learn by understanding their priorities and preconceptions.
