Attention all Childbirth Educators! We Want to Hear from You!
Last week, we featured a post that garnered an on-going, dynamic debate over what information childbirth educators should, and should not address during prenatal classes. Emotions ran high, discussion points were divisive: teach only that which you are an expert in, or be prepared to provide information on whatever expectant parents ask about (pertaining to pregnancy, birth and post-partum baby/parenting life).
And so, the dialog got me thinking. Along with the issue of childhood vaccinations, many other topics exist out there which we childbirth educators may find ourselves faced with in class–perhaps lacking sufficient information with which to reply to our eagerly awaiting students.
And so, I pass the baton to you:
1. What student questions have you faced in class (or are most apprehensive about facing) that have provided the greatest challenge to you?
2. How did/do you address this question?
*Please forward this post to members of your own birth-related network(s). The more discussion we can generate here, the greater learning opportunity for us all!
