Understanding your learning style will help you accomplish the per-certification work more efficiently and become an AMAZING Birth Boot Camp Instructor! We are often a combination of multiple leaerning styles, but there seems to be one or two that are dominant. For Example, I am mostly a tactile learner, I like to get my hands on things. Second to that I am a visual and auditory learner.
When I was preparing to teach my first Birth Boot Camp classes, I felt the need to practice out loud what I would say and how I would delivery it. When I did this, I was able to communicate with better clarity. I quickly realized that prior to practicing out loud, I had to organize my thoughts, so I made index cards. If I didn’t do these two things, I felt inept and nervous which resulted in poor communication.
By allowing your learning style to guide your preparation YOU CAN BECOME AN AMAZING BIRTH BOOT CAMP INSTRUCTOR!

My name is Jillian and I am a Doula, Childbirth Educator, Placenta Encapsulator, and Trainer for Birth Boot Camp, living in the Rainbow City, Alabama. I believe in women and that they deserve support throughout their pregnancy and births no matter what method of birth they desire. I myself am a mother to 4 girls; each of their births were vastly different.
