What is the pay like for childbirth educators? Could I make a living doing this?
Some settings pay by the hour. A hospital in the Seattle area may pay $18 to $20 an hour for a beginning childbirth educator. This typically covers class time, plus some time for setting up for class, and for cleaning up after a class. Some settings pay by the series: for example, $300-350 for a 14-hour series (7 weeks, 2 hours per week). This amount covers your teaching time and any set-up/tear down time needed. Pay rates increase with experience.
