Integrating Group Coaching into Birth Education

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

Curing the Dramatic Drop in Childbirth Education Attendance 

Recent studies found a dramatic drop in childbirth education attendance. Taking that the new consumers of childbirth education are millennials, it is not surprising. Millenials were born into the era of online information, and they are consuming knowledge on Google, Facebook, and Youtube.  Integrating coaching principles and strategies in your childbirth education classes will make you attractive and uniques. It will draw potential students that are looking for more than knowledge and information they already got online. It will magnet students who are ready for the next step of self-discovery –  clarify their belief system about childbirth, their wishes, and their goals,  and carve their desired birth experience. You will be able to lead them toward clarity and to elicit their accountability to their desired childbirth experience.

Resolving the Advocacy Dilemma in the Doula Practice

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

The advocacy dilemma in the field of childbirth support is a tough one to crack. The dilemma lies in the tension between certain components of birth support practice, such as serving and supporting, and other components such as being a change agent in our society and a birth activist.  Relying on coaching principles and strategies will help you to make sure you practice within the scope of your practice, and to refrain from projecting or engaging any birth activism agenda in your relationships with your birth clients. Coaching is the pathway to client-centered relationships and care.

If we begin by asking expectant couples strong coaching questions, with the goal of clarifying their beliefs about childbirth and their goals for their birth, it will build the foundation for an advocacy of a different kind. Advocacy that doesn’t represent expert’s authority but rather empathy and partnership. Advocacy that begins with the individual needs and beliefs.  We will then find ourselves introducing evidence-based resources that are aligned with our client’s personal needs and capacity, and eventually, I believe it will bring more couples to take childbirth education classes and hire doulas.

Join the growing community of doulas who already integrate coaching into their practice, and feel the difference; it will empower you and your clients!
