A person that provides information and education about natural birthing methods, statistics on hospital births, home births, ect., different laboring philosophies and their differences, taking care of of pregnant body and mind. Not specific to be called a Lamaze coach or a hypnobabies coach. Just an all around providing information over time as to ALL of the options that most hospital classes do not provide. Nor the midwives under their care. Is this person called an advocate, an educator? This person is not their during delivery but can help prepare a woman for delivery and can check on afterwards non medically.

I would think this type of person would be considered more of an educator. When I think of an advocate, I think of someone who would be in the role of directly working with the health care providers a woman has chosen for her pregnancy/birth to make sure the woman is getting what she needs and wants. But, I guess advocacy could also involve someone who is promoting the information you listed above. I think someone in this role who provided classes, etc. would be a great alternative to more traditional/hospital birthing classes.

This is my goal to be able to provide an alternate unbiased class NOT offered by a hospital. But how to go about being this person? Is there a course for this that isn't specific to doula, midwife, or a specific birthing coach training?
