Professional Training

Janet Balaskas, founder of Active Birth, has been training birth professionals for more than 3 decades, influencing birth education and midwifery practice through out the UK and internationally. This training brings you the most up-to-date information about birth physiology, active birth in practice, and inspirational new teaching methods.

The central aim of Active Birth is the empowerment of women, supported by their birth partners and attendants. We offer a flexible CPD programme and an accredited certification course (FEDANT) to become a  Janet Balaskas Active Birth Workshop © teacher.

Active Birth plays a major role in the provision and success of birthing centres, home births and all woman-centred midwifery. This training will benefit midwives, birth educators, doulas, pregnancy yoga and pilates teachers and is specifically designed to enhance or to be taught alongside all antenatal, NCT, HypnoBirthing and Pregnancy Yoga classes.
