Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting Training for Health Professionals
Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) is a unique childbirth education program designed to teach expectant parents the life skill of mindfulness for addressing the stress, pain, and fear that are often a normal part of the profound journey through pregnancy and childbirth — and to have these skills in place for attuned parenting from the moments of birth. Teaching mindfulness skills during pregnancy enhances the potential for a healthy gestation, a positive childbirth experience and sows the seeds for parenting the next generation with greater awareness, kindness, connectedness, and care.
Healthcare professionals will share the workshop experience with expectant couples. Everyone will experience the meditation practices and the mind-body pain practices, as they are taught in the MBCP classroom. Additional post-workshop hours are for health professionals only.
Fee: $425, includes Mindful Birthing and two CDs by Nancy Bardacke

Information for Those Interested in Becoming an MBCP Instructor
Becoming a Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) Instructor is a process that by its very nature takes patience, commitment, dedication, individual responsibility, creativity and imagination. MBCP teacher training is firmly grounded in the principle that the authenticity and effectiveness of one’s teaching can only come through one’s own personal mindfulness practice. Embodying the practice both inside and outside the classroom is key and this can only be developed through one’s own personal formal and informal mindfulness practice.
In response to requests for training to become an MBCP Instructor, formal MBCP Teacher Training (MBCPTT) programs have been developed both in the US and abroad. For those who would like to begin preparing to enter a formal MBCP Teacher Training program, a document outlining the essential background can be found here. There is a class starting in September in San Francisco.
