This episode Robin and Hillary talk about the value of childbirth education in the maternal health landscape as well as how they intend to help everyone celebrate – International Childbirth Education Week!

The goal is to celebrate childbirth education and childbirth educators in a week-long celebration every year. This is meant to encompass all childbirth educators no matter where they teach or what format. This is not about any specific organization or style of teaching, but for everyone who works with new families in hopes of helping them along the way.

We will be hosting a twitter chat on Thursday, January 30th at 2p ET. We hope you’ll join us using #CBEWeek20
