COVID-19 policies

COVID-19 cancellation policy

If Breech Without Borders needs to cancel due to COVID-19 or low enrollment, or if you cannot come due to COVID-19-related reasons, you will have 2 options:

  1. Partial refund for the simulation portion of your ticket (for hybrid workshops). You will continue to have full access to Breech Pro, including twice-monthly optional live sessions where participants can interact with the instructors, ask questions, watch and comment on breech birth videos, etc. The online workshop includes CEUs.
  2. Transfer your registration to any other upcoming breech workshop (with a refund of any price difference).

Hybrid workshops

Beginning in the summer of 2022, we are transitioning to full-day workshops with 16 people/day (25/day if both Dr. Freeze and Dr. Hayes are teaching). Whenever possible, we teach in well-ventilated classrooms with operable windows or in covered outdoor locations.

Updated mask policy (September 2022): We will adhere to state/national/venue guidelines on masking. We will try to ventilate and open windows whenever possible, which will reduce transmission risk and lessen the need for masking. In some locations, we may ask participants to wear N95/KN95 masks or equivalent (no cloth or surgical masks) if the BWB instructors have international travel soon after the event. BWB will supply masks if you do not have your own. 

Why these precautions?

Breech Without Borders takes very seriously the risks associated with gatherings of people, often from many regions, states, and occasionally countries, during a coronavirus pandemic. We are taking every reasonable action to reduce transmission to and from our audience, which naturally includes health care workers active in their communities. 

We understand that some participants may hold different views of the risk of acquiring CoV2 from community exposure. However, we ask that our attendees be sensitive to the fact that our instructors are teaching and traveling extensively. If one of our instructors were to contract CoV2 while teaching, Breech Without Borders would be forced to cancel all future workshops while the instructor recovered, putting our organization's future in jeopardy. And most importantly, we need to protect our instructors from contracting the virus, as they are our organization's most valuable resource. 

We thank you in advance for being willing to accept some minor inconveniences in exchange for the invaluable opportunity of breech training.
