Birthlight membership benefits

We're often asked what it means to be a member of Birthlight and the benefits that it brings. Birthlight baby yoga teacher and membership co-ordinator Renata Konitz recently wrote what being a member of the 'Birthlight community' meant for her as a teacher in Brazil.

"I promote my classes on the Birthlight website because I know that if someone in Brazil hears about Birthlight they will be able to find me using the ‘find a teacher’ search tool. I also know that by being listed there, people will be certain that I represent this big community - I am really part of it. Being a Birthlight member gives me the confidence that I took my training with the best tutors, the best methodology, I am part of a big community that its main goal is to make the world a better place. I hope you all feel the same way and I hope we can work together despite our distance. I hope we can make the difference in our little communities, bringing more happiness to the families that surround us. I hope we can make those spirals of joy bigger and bigger! "
