The childbirth educator training is best for people with a basic understanding of birth. Both birth and postpartum doulas take this one day training to enhance their understanding of childbirth and to be able to have tools and ideas to offer their clients. Birth educators work in a variety of locations, including yoga studios, chiropractors offices, midwifery centers, and can also teach in pregnant people’s own homes.
