BRN provider training is a stand-alone workshop in how to assist with the newborn transition. Taught by a BRN Certified Instructor, the training includes both theoretical and hands-on practice components. To receive a BRN provider card, you must attend the entire five hour workshop and pass the written and skills assessments.
BRN meets NARM (North American Registry of Midwives) certification and recertification requirements for neonatal resuscitation training.
To learn more about the program, visit About BRN.
Birthingway offers the LD&D renewal course twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall. This workshop is for midwives who have already completed their initial training and are licensed. It updates the same topics in a shortened format, and includes a testing component. For more detailed information please see our LD&D information page. Neonatal resuscitation training is not part of the LD&D renewal workshop and needs to be taken separately. Please visit the Biodynamic Resuscitation of the Newborn (BRN) website for more information.

Participants are encouraged to bring a document from their practice to examine during the workshop.
This workshop qualifies for three CEUs. We will also apply for three ECERPs from IBLCE.
