If you are not accepted into the program (rare), your fees will be refunded in full; however, after acceptance into the program all fees are non-refundable.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. There is only one path available to become an Esali Birth Support Educator. Esali Birth Support Educators are required to have a previous positive birth support experience. Esali Birth Support Educators are not required to have medical backgrounds or previous education experience. Esali Birth does not accept reciprocity from any other certifying agency or education. We develop education in a specific format that is continuously updated and require all our educators to follow the same format for certification. This ensures integrity within our organization and continuity between Esali Birth classes. However, we do not require our educators to teach specific time frames, maintain membership, or enroll in continuing education outside of the Esali Birth environment, though these are encouraged. Upon successful completion of the course, educators must sign the Esali Birth Scope of Practice & Code of Conduct and are enabled to use the EBSE credential at the end of their name, signifying their successful completion of EBSE training.

Esali Birth Support Educators are not required to obtain or maintain membership, attend workshops, re-certify, or obtain continuing education units to maintain the EBSE credential. Why? Because we don’t believe in making positive perinatal education a money market. We believe that the perinatal period is a very normal event in our lives and choose to offer training to a society that lacks the resources to normal and healthy birth education. Esali Birth offers training in a distance-education environment and an acceptance of the Esali Birth code of conduct, scope of practice, and philosophy. We provide our trained educators with recommended material, but rely on a philosophy of responsibility for our specialists. Your experience and referrals will speak for themselves.
