Hey there - I'm Toni Harman


15 years ago, I was pregnant and wanted to make all the best choices for my child. 

To fully prepare myself, I took not one but TWO different childbirth education classes, and a separate breastfeeding class.

I planned a home birth and wanted to exclusively breastfeed.
Instead, I ended up having an emergency C-section, struggled to breastfeed, and ended up "topping up" with infant formula. I landed so far from my birth and breastfeeding plan. I kept asking myself….

"DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG?"


What happened next?


Questions about what might be missing from childbirth and lactation education sent my partner, Alex Wakeford and I, on a 10 year journey around the world.

Over the past decade, we have interviewed hundreds of different experts to find a 'missing piece' - something to help fully inform all parents.

Interviews with leading scientists led us to make our award-winning documentary MICROBIRTH

Featuring leading professors from top universities, we are so proud that our film MICROBIRTH, has been broadcast around the world, and has had over 1,000 public screenings.

Not just that. MICROBIRTH has won several science film festivals. It's led to us authoring two books.

And it's led to us creating this online school - now with over 40,000 enrolled members.



We held our first international conference THE MICROBIRTH PLAN which became THE MICROBIRTH SUMMIT - and both were a tremendous success, with over 800 people joining!



We believe we have found the 'missing piece'....


To enable FULL INFORMED CHOICE, all expectant parents need to know about the critical microscopic events happening during birth and breastfeeding.


This is the science of the infant microbiome.


Awareness of this science EARLY IN PREGNANCY has the power to transform the expectant parent's gut health and in turn, can impact their child's long-term health, potentially reducing the risks of allergies, asthma, diabetes, obesity and a whole host of auto-immune conditions.


Education about the infant microbiome and gut health needs to come ideally in the first or second trimester.

Early awareness of the microbiome gives extra motivation for expectant parents...

To adapt their diet and lifestyle to be more 'microbiome' mindful'...
Plus time to optimally prepare for birth and breastfeeding.

What is the infant microbiome?


VERY SIMPLY: Vaginal birth transfers the birth parent's beneficial vaginal, gut and skin microbes to the baby.

Special sugars in breast milk feed those beneficial microbes newly arrived in the baby's gut.

This "seed and feed" process helps optimally train the infant immune system.

This can help protect a baby for life.

But there is so much more to explain....

This is why we have created....

You might have some questions - so we have the answers for you!



If your question isn't answered below, do send me a message via the CONTACT FORM

https://microbirth.com/contact-us/



***

Q

Who is this programme for?
Parent educators and health professionals who want to teach parents including: antenatal teachers, childbirth educators, lactation educators, doctors, midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, hypnobirth instructors, breastfeeding counsellors, health practitioners and other health professionals.



Prerequisites to course entry:
Degree level qualification or evidence of a minimum of 1 year experience working in an appropriate and related field with expectant and new parents e.g. childbirth education, doula, midwifery, lactation support.



***

Q

Can I use these tools to teach other health professionals?
Yes, but......These tools offer a very SIMPLE basic-level understanding of the infant microbiome. The level of science is TOO BASIC if health professionals are going to be supporting parents in their birth and infant feeding choices. All health professionals would ideally need a MUCH DEEPER UNDERSTANDING of this science.

We recommend health professionals either take the MICROBIRTH Approved Provider programme themselves, or take one of our other full-length courses: https://microbirth.teachable.com


***


Q

When to offer a MICROBIRTH class?
The flexible format means you can "slot" this teaching into your own existing parent childbirth education class in the 3rd trimester, or teach it as a stand-alone training ideally EARLY IN PREGNANCY (1st or 2nd trimester).

If you teach the science of the infant microbiome EARLY, you can help expectant parents make more empowered informed choices later in pregnancy, especially decisions around their birth (either vaginal birth or C-section), and how to feed their baby.

You can use an MICROBIRTH class EARLY IN PREGNANCY to form a close personal connection with parents early on (ahead of other educators), so you become the first choice LATER in pregnancy - for example, when parents are choosing their childbirth educator, doula, hypnobirth instructor, midwife, doctor, lactation expert etc.


***

Q

Why a LIVE class ideally?
In a LIVE class, you can answer questions immediately, with confidence, with accuracy, supported by evidence-based research. This will help quickly alleviate any worries or concerns.


***

Q

Can I copy the materials?
No. All our materials, resources and Teaching Tools are copyright protected. You can use our Teaching Tools to teach your own classes or in 1-to-1 consultations under the terms of the license agreement, but you cannot duplicate, edit, sell on, or "rip-off" our resources, or share with an organisation/instititution or group. We take our copyright very seriously and we reserve the right to take action against those who breach our copyright.



***

Q

Can I use these materials on my own website or use as a "lead capture"?
No. You cannot use any of the Teaching Tools on your own website as a "lead capture" to bring in potential clients or capture email addresses. These materials are intended to be used to teach your own live classes or in 1-to-1 consultations.



***
Q

Can I use these materials in my own online course?
Well, yes and no - the materials in the toolkit are designed to be used within a live class or in 1:1 consultations. If you are hosting your live class online, and someone is unable to attend your live class, the recording of the live class can be made available to those enrolled in your live class for 72 hours only.



None of the materials in the Toolkit can be made permanently available online as part of a digital online course or recorded workshop - because this will be unfair to other Microbirth Approved Practitioners who are teaching live classes.



***

Q

Can I use these materials for Institutional Use, for example, to teach classes at University?
You DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION to use these materials for Institutional Use. They CANNOT be used to teach within a University, School or other Institution.

These tools teach a very simple BASIC-LEVEL introduction. This level is NOT ENOUGH to teach healthcare professionals who are supporting pregnant or new parents, or for example Midwifery students studying at a University.
Ideally, we recommend ALL health professionals and all University students to take one of our full-length Microbiome Courses (especially if they support pregnant or new parents) or to become a MICROBIRTH Approved Provider themselves!



***

Q

Can my organisation use these resources?
These resources are for INDIVIDUAL use only, by one person in a class (either online or in real-life).



One payment = one license = one person.

Please contact us to discuss a license to use these resources by an organisation or an institution, or for group use. https://microbirth.com/contact-us/



***

Q

Can parents become MICROBIRTH Approved Providers?
Yes, although this content is primarily aimed at health professionals. Please be aware that the information provided within the resources and Toolkit is for general information only. We cannot give advice relating to specific medical matters. If you have any concerns about your own or your baby's health, please consult your health care provider.



***

Q

How much could I earn?
What you charge for your classes, how many hours you choose to work and how many parents you teach will determine how much you earn. Obviously, the more people you teach, or the higher prices you charge, the more you could earn.

This is new science, and you will be amongst the very first in the world to teach this critical cutting-edge science to parents. What you make of this opportunity is up to you.

If you already offer parent educational classes, you could potentially charge more for your classes by including the Microbirth Approved Provider curriculum!


***

Q

What is the recommended price I charge per class?
The recommended price to charge for a MICROBIRTH
LIVE class is USD $30-$60 per person per 90 minute class. If you had 10 people in a class, that would earn you USD $300-$600 per class. All the money you make per class woudl go to you.

***

Earnings Disclaimer:

There are no guarantees. As with any business, how much money an individual can earn through teaching the MICROBIRTH
curriculum will depend on your own experience, dedication, capacity and desire. If you choose to join this programme, you accept the risk that the earnings and income differ by indivudal. You also accept that there are no guarantees of individual success.

As a MICROBIRTH Approved Provider, you will be licensed to use our curriculum in your classes. However, you would be working as an independent educator for your own business. As you will be your own boss, you will be responsible for your own insurance, taxes and expenses.


***

Q

Can I share my tools with other health professionals?
No. These tools are for the use of ONE PERSON ONLY.

One purchase = one individual = one license

Contact us to ask about GROUP DISCOUNTS for organisations, institutions or small groups of people!

CONTACT US - using the contact form on the MICROBIRTH website:
https://microbirth.com/contact-us/


***

Q

How do I use the toolkit?
All the tools are fully downloadable. They are licensed and ready to use in LIVE real-life or online classes. And you are given FULL TRAINING on how to use the tools. Your class can be recorded and made available for a set time (e.g. 72 hours) for those who missed your class - but ideally you would still incorporate a live Q&A element to answer parent questions.


Once someone has passed the MICROBIRTH APPROVED PROVIDER ASSESSMENT - they are able to download and use the tools and resources in the toolkit.


***

14 DAY MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE:

If you are not satisfied for any reason, we offer a 14 day full money-back guarantee.

To cancel within 14 days after purchase, simply contact us.

Once cancelled, your license will be terminated. You will not be able to use any of the MICROBIRTH curriculum. Any downloaded tools or materials will then need to be deleted or destroyed.


***

Any more questions?



CONTACT US - using the contact form on the MICROBIRTH website:
https://microbirth.com/contact-us/


***

In summary, why should I become a MICROBIRTH Approved Provider?
By becoming a MICROBIRTH Approved Provider you will be helping to prepare and empower parents-to-be for ther birth and infant feeding choices.

With this knowledge, you could be helping transform the health of the next generation.

I hope you decide to join us.
