2020 was the inaugural year for the celebration of International Childbirth Education Week. It is meant to be a time for all people to celebrate the benefits of childbirth education, regardless of their professional affiliation or position. We would love to see this celebrated by childbirth educators, parents, hospitals, organizations, doulas, practitioners, and everyone who has a stake in the benefits of childbirth education.
Follow us on social media for more great content to share all month!
This year the theme is: Leap Ahead with Childbirth Ed focusing on the benefits of childbirth education for families in the short and long term.
The goal of a theme is to have a quick way to talk about the subject and is not meant to be the only thing you say. Ideally, you’ll use your own words and stories about what childbirth education has meant to you or the families you serve.
We will be hosting a Twitter chat on January 30th at 2p ET. This will be hosted by @RobinPregnancy We hope you’ll join us using #CBEWeek22
