Each year the amount of people that apply to be a BIRTHFIT Affiliate literally doubles. We are looking for educated, open-minded leaders in your designated communities. If you are at all interested in becoming a BIRTHFIT Affiliate, I'd encourage you to read through this blog.
You are applying to represent BIRTHFIT and the four pillars we hold so dear to our everyday lifestyles. You are applying to represent your city and be a leader in your community. You are applying to be a go-to resource for women in your community. You are expected to lead from the front and to set up a solid network around you.
You can apply as one person or as a partnership. If you are applying as a partnership, you each will need to fill out and provide everything individually throughout the affiliate application process.You will each pay an affiliate fee each year. And, you will each go through the training.
This is a huge responsibility and should not be taken lightly. Each BIRTHFIT affiliate is its own small business, dependent on you. This can be a full-time or part-time career. It all depends on how much energy you invest. We understand that this is not for everyone, and everyone does not fit the mold. However, those that are selected are special spirits ready to lead their tribes.
The process has three distinct steps plus a launch:
You complete the list of requirements. Fill out the information sheet. Email the entire packet to email@example.com by December 1st. This means include everything together, preferably as a google document with your FIRST NAME and LAST NAME and SUBJECT.
If the applicant has passed the application process, then BIRTHFIT will contact applicant to set up an interview with one of the BIRTHFIT Leaders between Dec 15-Dec 31st. This is either done in person or Skype, depends on location of leader. You will then either be invited to continue on the training process or not.
If the applicant passes the first two steps, then the affiliate fee is to be paid by January 31st. Yes, both partners will need to pay the affiliate fee. We start the training process in January. This is 10 weeks via weekly webinars and one in-person training (The BIRTHFIT Summit). The affiliate will learn about BIRTHFIT consultations, prenatal series, postpartum series, and workshops. The affiliate will also learn more about pregnancy, training, postpartum, birth, and business tips.
Once the applicant has gone through all three steps, he/she will launch BIRTHFIT NAME with The Postpartum Series. By now, I hope you have realized that the whole first year is considered a learning experience; train for a year.
Thank you for joining the BIRTHFIT movement. We understand that this is a lot for someone to take on. However, we have set a standard for affiliates and we’d prefer to keep that all across the board as we are passionate about changing the game of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
Thank you for understanding.
