Online Monthly Meet-Ups for Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators
What is the Monthly Meet-Up?
The Monthly Meet-Up is a live, online gathering of Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators. These casual online chats last 45 – 60 minutes and provide a chance for LCCE Educators to share their thoughts, ideas, questions, and concerns on specific topics. Monthly Meet-Ups are hosted by Lisa Baker, LCCE Educator Member At-Large for the Lamaze Education Council. Monthly Meet-Ups are a great way to give your input on all things Lamaze and to gather helpful strategies and ideas from other LCCE Educators who share your passion.
