The International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA) 2013 Cruise Conference
Why Attend the ICEA Cruise Conference?
This is the first annual meeting that ICEA has ever held on a cruise. The Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas ship is specially designed to accommodate conferences with excellent meeting spaces. So, in addition to a jam-packed educational line-up that will occur during the two days at sea, the cruise will allow plenty of recreational time to enjoy with friends, family and colleagues both on-ship and during visits to Belize and Cozumel. You’ll depart with a wealth of new and updated information to help you in your work and a host of pleasant memories.
Who Should Attend?
Current and aspiring childbirth educators, doulas (both birth and postpartum), perinatal fitness instructors, midwives, labor-and-delivery nurses and other health professionals interested in improved maternity services for expectant parents.
Attendees on the cruise will receive a full 24 ICEA contact hours that can be used towards ICEA recertification. ICEA has applied for 15.5 hours of nursing (CEU) and lactation consultant (CERP) continuing education credits.
***If current ICEA Certified Childbirth Educators or Doulas attend any ICEA 2 day pre-conference OR the full cruise conference for recertification purposes, they will fulfill the ENTIRE recertification requirement of 24 ICEA contact hours, even if less hours are given at the conference attended. For example, if the conference is approved for 15.5 contact hours, an ICEA Certified participant will receive 24.0 ICEA contact hours by attending to be used for their recertification(s).
