How to book
How does it work?
Breech Without Borders sets up online registration and reimburses local organizers for any expenses such as room rental or food. After covering program expenses, all proceeds are donated to Breech Without Borders, a 501(c)3 nonprofit (public charity), to further its educational missions.
Local organizers help by finding a workshop classroom, advertising, and arranging for food/drinks during the workshops. The organizer's most important role is promoting the workshop, both online and in person. We expect organizers to spend at least 2 hours/week promoting the workshop. This could include emails, social media, phone calls, in-person contacts, etc.
For a hybrid workshop, the organizer receives a 50% discount once the minimum 12-15 people have registered for a full hybrid ticket. If 24+ people register, the organizer will receive a free ticket and one helper will receive 50% off.
Once 25 people have registered for an in-person workshop, the organizer receives free admission, and one additional helper receives 50% off the ticket price.
An in-person workshop is generally capped at 50 attendees. We recommend adding an additional day of hands-on training for groups over 25.
Workshop fees, whether in-person or hybrid, are typically $350/$300 student or the USD equivalent for the 2-day training and $500 /$450 student for the 3-day training. If you live outside the US & Canada, we will work to make our workshop affordable in your local economy. We are also willing to pursue grant funding to support workshops in economically disadvantaged areas.
We can also bring the workshop to your organization or institution for a flat fee. Please inquire as rates vary by location.
Hybrid workshop enrollment
We require 12 registrations to hold a hybrid workshop within continental North America or Europe. Other locations require 15 people minimum to compensate for higher travel expenses.
In-person workshop enrollmentOption A: The local organizer agrees to have at least 20 people enrolled within 45 days prior to the event. If less than 20 are enrolled by the deadline, the local organizer agrees to pay the remainder due. This contract ensures that the event will not have to transition to a virtual workshop due to low enrollment.
Option B: 20 people must be enrolled within 60 days prior to the event. The local host does not have any financial responsibility; however, Breech Without Borders may choose to transition to a virtual or hybrid workshop due to low enrollment.
Do you offer CEUs/CMEs?
We currently offer continuing education credits through ACNM, MEAC, the Midwifery Council of New Zealand, and the Australian College of Midwives.
We can apply for CMEs via the European Accreditation Council for CME (EACCME) with at least 6 months advance notice; these CMEs have reciprocity in the US and Canada.
We are also happy to apply for CMEs via your institution's continuing education department.
What languages do you teach in?
We teach in English and are happy to work with a translator that you provide. If workshops are translated, the 2-day workshop will require 3 full days to account for the translation process.
