5 Reasons for Teaching Childbirth Classes
#1 – Teaching Childbirth Classes offers an easily scheduled stream of revenue!
If you work full time or you’re a SAHM (Stay at home mom) THIS could be your answer! By becoming a Certified Childbirth Educator, you can schedule as little as one class per month. That’s only one day a month of childcare needed! The rest of the month you can spend creating awareness about your classes and marketing them to the public as well as to OB offices, midwifery practices and other professionals in your community.
#2 Teaching Childbirth Classes is the least expensive way to:
Get started in the birth industry or to add revenue to your existing birth business! The cost of becoming a Certified Childbirth Educator is only $275 in comparison to becoming a doula which is $595. Of course, both require a professional membership fee but the SAVINGS is $320.00!!!!! You can’t beat that!
#3 Teaching is by far the best way to network and market your doula business.
People know what childbirth classes are. They actively seek them out. But many people have no idea what a doula even is or how they can benefit from one. Becoming a Certified Childbirth Educator and standing in the front of a room full of pregnant people positions you as an expert. When you teach them what a doula is and they learn that you are one, it only makes sense to them to hire you to support them through their birth. After all, a childbirth educator is like a birth encyclopedia and that has value to birthing couples.
#4 Teaching positions you as a thought leader.
People will seek you out for your expertise and doors will open for you. Referrals will come and opportunities will arise. People value education and they value educators even more!
#5 Because you’ll LOVE IT!
If you are passionate about birth, if the idea of helping others explore their birth options excites you, if you are moved by contributing to the empowerment of others, you will simply love teaching childbirth classes.
