Childbirth Education Workshop Testimonials

"Michelle, who humbly insists that she is not creative, is actually wildly creative and innovative as an instructor! She introduced us to so many things that, to quote her, I had "missed the boat" on thus far. Things like making sure that you have a way to know whether your students understand the material - in other words not just talking AT them, but checking for understanding. Making sure that you are considering the needs of both parents and the family as a whole in addition to mom's as an individual. Making sure that as an instructor, you are examining your biases and checking yourself. My very favorite activity was on day two. I won't give away the specifics but it forced me to examine my assumptions about certain situations, and hear different points of view. Ultimately for this activity the group had to come to a consensus and the overarching theme was "it depends on so many things". There are always two sides to the pancake!"  Katherine McCarty, 2016


"Excellent class.  This childbirth Educator class exceeded my expectations:  I have a clear understanding of what ICEA requires, and it was super fun both days.  Michelle has in-depth knowledge and experience in teaching childbirth education and she stays on top of new developments. I learned about teaching childbirth education from the ICEA model such as: hands-on, videos, and role-playing, and clear objectives, plus learned and practiced many things such as spiraling, rebozzo, babywearing and open communication.  Positive energy from being with this group for two days."  Martha Wasserman (2016)


"I am so glad I attended Michelle's Childbirth  Educator Class. It was two very full days with  a wide range of information, ideas and advice. Michelle has a very engaging teaching style. I felt very relaxed and had a lot of fun while learning a ton! She makes sure you have everything you need to know for the certification test and beyond. I left feeling excited about the  possibilities for my future in Childbirth Education." Heather Sutton (2016)

 "Training with ICEA and Michelle showed me that there are so many ways to be compassionate doula.  It was wonderful to be in a situation where I could learn not only from my wonderful instructor but also the other women who joined me. After my training, I felt more able to support women and their partners in a variety of ways, everything from emotional and physical suport to even just being a calm voice and presence when necessary." Stephanie Umstot (2016)
