Online Monthly Meet Ups Are Now Available for Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators
Starting on May 22, 2013, current LCCE Educators will have a new venue for sharing thoughts, ideas, and suggestions with each other. The “Monthly Meet-Up” is a live, online discussion that allows LCCE Educators around the globe to come together to solve problems, share solutions, and stay connected. Monthly Meet-Ups are hosted by Lisa Baker, LCCE Educator Member At-Large for the Lamaze Education Council. The LCCE Educator Member At-Large provides a voice for the LCCE Educator population on issues addressed by the Education Council. Monthly Meet-Ups are a great way to give your input on all things Lamaze and to gather helpful strategies and ideas from other LCCE Educators who share your passion.
