TCPerspective- Winter 2014

Each quarter, we will be featuring a post from one of our Teacher Certification Program (TCP) students. Coming from a variety of backgrounds, life experience and specializations, CEA/MNY is proud to be educating these bright and enthusiastic women as future CCCEs. 

I learned about CEA/MNY through word of mouth as I was looking to become a childbirth educator.  I loved how the education component of the CEA/MNY program was live and in person, as I am not much of an online learner. I was a bit leery as it seemed to be a large financial investment for me overall. After taking the first workshop with Susanrachel Condon this past September, my worries melted away.

The vast amount of information and skills that I have gained from every workshop that I have taken has informed my practice as a doula and future childbirth educator and has made me more confident.  I loved how Susanrachel, in particular, as well as other instructors have been very open to answering questions and making sure that we understand the material being presented.  I also love how the program is all about supporting choices and workshop presenters are not bound to one particular philosophy. I am so glad that I decided to join CEA/MNY!  I look forward to future workshops and finishing the certification program!
