Teacher Training

Train to support families to have a more empowered and enjoyable birthing experience!

Mnpic4smWith MummyNatal you can train to support parents through weekly classes for mums-to-be, and Couples Natal Birth Workshops.

MummyNatal practitioners train over approximately a 6-12 month period. This includes 5 days of face-to-face training with Natal family founders, 90 hours of home study and reflection, practice teaching and of course final examinations. This learning is documented within a MummyNatal portfolio. We strongly value CPD and teachers must complete recognised CPD hours each year to remain licensed.

MummyNatal utilizes the expertise of a range of professionals for your training, as we believe it will be more engaging and enjoyable for you, and it also allows you to learn from people with a real specialism and passion in diverse areas. All our trainers are professionals who we believe to have an empowering approach and follow best practice.

What our trainee teachers say

‘I thoroughly enjoyed all weekends of the training, so much so, that i wished there was a few more days to attend!!!

It was very informative and alot of the topics we discussed were inspirational in so many ways;not only to be used in our teaching, but also things we can apply to our every day lifes. The whole concept of ‘mindfulness’ was explained in such simple terms, that i found it quite easy to grasp and I have already started using it.

I wish i myself had attended MummyNatal classes during my two pregnancies as i feel it would have really affected my entire approach in a much calmer and positive way. Having attended NHS antenatal classes, attending the MummyNatal training was very refreshing. I especially love the ‘non-prescriptive’ approach in all concept of dealing with labour and birthing. 

I found the sessions very informal and relaxed, which was great, as I (im sure others were too) was quite nervous. I am very excited about starting my teaching and becoming a part of The Natal Family!’
