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 The Natal Family Training School Directors, 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

‘Taking the plunge and training to become a MummyNatal Practioner has been a fantastic experience. Sharon, our trainer, really knew her stuff and taught in such a professional, friendly and supportive way that we all learnt so much! There was good mix of practical and theory based activities and I have come away feeling excited and prepared for my first set of classes and my ongoing portfolio work.

As someone with a training background, I know what to look for in a well delivered course and Sharon and all at The Natal Family have done a fabulous job creating such a comprehensive yet engaging training course.

I also loved meeting the other new practioners and we will certainly stay good friends, continuing to support each other on our individual journeys!”
