I have been a doula in Houston for two years and I have also wanted to become a CBE. I've been stalking the various programs' websites the whole time and none jumped out as "the one" until Birth Boot Camp. Has anyone attended a training and/or started teaching? What do you think about the program?

I'm a Birth Boot Camp Instructor and I can personally vouch for the in-depth thorough curriculum.  the instructor training sets you up for nothing less than success.  Its an intense 3 day workshop and covers every single one of the 10 classes plus marketing tips, etc.  anyway I could go on and on but if you'd like the answers to more specific questions just ask :)

I'm considering CBE and looking around.  This one does really look good, but the instructor requirement is that you have had natural births.  I haven't had a completely natural birth, so I wouldn't qualify.  :(  I get disappointed when organizations require that, a lot of us have learned a lot from our not so natural births that we want to pass on to others.

I've not attended the training, but have met the founder and several other BBC educators in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Some lovely, personable women!

I'm so glad you posted this. I also want to go through training, but they won't have a Denver training until 2015. So, it will be nice to hear some reviews of the training while I wait. :)  I've heard great things about the training. One of the owners contacted me about the Denver training, so I was really impressed with that.

I think one is supposed to come to Houston next year, so I will hopefully have enough money saved up by then.

Does anyone know if Birth Boot Camp will be coming to Seattle this year?  I asked online at their site but haven't heard back yet. I like the reading list better than the Bradley list and it is much less expensive.
