Solutions for Childbirth Professionals

3 Systems for Success | Choose the track that meets your needs.


This isn’t just a childbirth education certification, it’s a way to connect with clients and prepare them for the emotional and physical aspects of [childbirth]. YBE doesn’t focus on one way to do things, it gives all options and helps facilitate conversation!

Wondering what to do in prenatal visits? Feel like you need a prenatal meeting planner? Sometimes handouts, and client forms fail to get to the heart of what is truly important in childbirth. And guess what? It has little to do with natural versus medicated or interventions and the standard birth plan.

Sending forms to clients, inundating them with paperwork, checklists and website links doesn't help you learn how to meet their needs. This simple, step-by-step system for doulas creates powerful and effective consultations and prenatal appointments. Get beyond the typical birth plan with the YBE Equip online training and YBE's Envisioning Your Birth booklet. You will know your clients and understand their needs in a whole new way! 

"I did my first prenatal with the YBE booklet last night and I am STILL on a high! Missy, this curriculum rocks and I am so glad you created it! If nothing else comes from doing this than adding to my prenatal care the Envisioning Your Birth information, it will completely change the way I support my clients. (I expect more will come of it than that, but that's an awesome minimum.)" - Sylwinn Tudor

The YBE curriculum is simple, understandable, completely fact-driven and un-biased. This comprehensive training and material provides step-by-step information about the most important aspects of birth, breastfeeding and baby care. 

Your clients learn all of their options and the curriculum leaves room for them to embrace it and make it their own. No one needs to be told how to have their baby, they just need all the information so they can decide what is best for them.

A YBE Childbirth Educator truly empowers parents regardless of method or mode of delivery. YBE Childbirth Educators have complete freedom to be authentically their own self in their teaching style. This complete, all-in-one curriculum can be expanded and customized as you see fit to best meet the needs of your clients and community.

"I recently trained to be a YBE Childbirth Educator. I'm already certified with another childbirth education program, so I wasn't totally sure what would be different about YBE. I can honestly say that even though the facts of childbirth are the same, the way YBE teaches them is so much more than giving you the facts. YBE helps parents learn what's important to them and how to communicate their needs. YBE offers instructors the tools to share with our students so that we can help them have the most positive birth experience possible. Missy has put together a comprehensive, simple, and effective curriculum, and I can't wait to start teaching this to my students and doula clients. Thank you, Missy!" -Brittany Dowell
