Apprenticeship Requirement: 

  • Successfully complete the 10-day Birth Into Being course.  The 5 Levels can either be taken all at once, or in 2 day increments over a period of one year.

The Facilitator-in-Training certificate* allows you to assist at other BIB events, teach Birth Into Being Method workshops (Levels 1-3); 1-on-1 sessions with your clients, and integrate the Method into a private practice.**

There are two options: either first take 6 days of the Facilitator Training (FT) course; or, first complete the Post-Apprenticeship Training requirements.

Post-Apprenticeship Training Requirements: 

  • Assist at another Birth Into Being workshop for a minimum of 10 days total (can be done in 2-day increments, in different locations, with different facilitators, it's at the discretion of the facilitator if a daily assistant fee is charged for assisting, or not).
