The purpose for this membership association is to promote healthy childbearing practices. Membership dues provide the means to continue research and to educate and serve the public. It is the vision of Charis to be a positive influence on childbearing practices all around the world.
Anyone can be a member of Charis Childbirth and receive the benefits of membership. Members may be childbearing families, childbirth educators, doulas, lactation specialists, midwives, nurses, doctors, chiropractors, or anyone interested in childbirth.
Regardless of the type of involvement with childbirth and growing families, everyone can benefit from membership. Members receive newsletters, which include valuable information, testimonies, a calendar of upcoming events; and can be listed in the Charis Childbirth Membership Directory. Once the Charis Online Store is up and running, members will receive a discount on books and other resources as well.
Membership is a link to childbearing families, ministers, and childbirth professionals around the world. Members will be informed about and have an opportunity to participate in missions trips designed to help equip missionaries and foreign nationals to serve childbearing families.
The requirements for membership are very simple. First, members must be in unity with the Charis Vision and Mission Statements. Second, they must pay the yearly membership fee.
MEMBERSHIP AND CE/DOULA CERTIFICATION
Membership is a requirement for all Charis students and Charis Certified Childbirth Educators and Doulas.
Any amount donated to Charis above and beyond the membership fee is a huge blessing and will be used to support the ministry of Charis Childbirth, enabling Charis to continue ministering locally in the US and around the world.
