& Nursing Mothers' Council
BACE and BACE+
BACE participants are provided a customizable template to build their classes from.
This comprehensive curriculum includes a slide for each topic, with a notes section where participants record objectives, materials, teaching methods, and their own notes.
every topic of a comprehensive childbirth class is covered completely in our training, giving BACE participants a true chance to develop objectives, materials and teaching methods that resonate with them individually
BACE training provides mentoring far above that of any other local or national certification organization, to allow each instructor to blossom into the impactful educator they want to become.
Countless valuable resources have been curated in a Google Classroom for BACE participants to create their own libraries from, with encouragement to continue their own education as part of ongoing certification requirements.

intentions of the educator for imparting to learners for each topic.
BACE participants are challenged to develop objectives beyond the basic! Examples:
Childbirth education participants will:
practice making informed choices in regards to cervical exams, and learn a model of shared decision-making to apply to other conversations about their own care
learn the sights, sounds, signs and symptoms of active labor to better inform participants of optimal times to make the move to the birth setting
how a topic is taught has a huge impact on how it is learned
BACE educators are inspired to create engaging activities and encourage community-building in classes.
Examples of teaching methods are:
Collaborative lists of resources for postpartum planning
Interactive labor rehearsals
Spirited discussion of types of support
