If you intend to teach a Savvy Birth Pro Workshop, you should reserve about 3 hours of your time to watch and digest the videos of the demonstration workshop. This is the workshop curriculum for Professionals Only. If you want to teach a Parents’ workshop, that curriculum– although similar– has some important differences, that will be discussed in the lesson to be released on Wednesday, November 3, in the evening.
*The videos below are from the first version of the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (most of the attendees in the videos were professionals, only 2 were parents). I did not make major revisions from 2015-2016. If you read the suggested script/cue cards in the Instructor Manual, the differences have to do with changing the wording from “you” to “your client.” I also made some changes to Step 4 to make it more applicable to doulas, and I changed the conclusion to make it applicable to professionals!
The Instructor Manual can be downloaded in the overarching lesson, which you can access here.

You will need to reserve about 5 minutes at the end to explain how they will get their certificate (i.e., you will be submitting their names/emails to EBB, they will be receiving an email from EBB in about 10-12 days with a link to an evaluation and brief 5-item quiz, after which they can download their certificate).
