What does the CAPPA Childbirth Educator Training cover?

Leave your training ready to teach expectant families!

This 2-day (18 seat hours) training is the first step in becoming a Certified Childbirth Educator with CAPPA, the world’s largest childbirth education organization.

Attending can also count toward fulfilling CEU requirements for CAPPA professionals in need of recertification! (I’m working on getting registered to offer contact hours for nurses in Colorado!)

Who should take this training?

  • Nurses & other support staff. (L&D, NICU, Mom & Baby, Pediatrics)
  • Current Childbirth Educators
  • Hospital Educators
  • Labor & Postpartum Doulas
  • Physicians & Midwives
  • Public Health Staff
  • La Leche League Leaders & Lactation Professionals
  • WIC Professionals
  • Anyone supporting families during pregnancy

CAPPA Certified Childbirth Educators can:

  • Teach in hospitals or other professional facilities
  • Teach childbirth classes exclusively as an independent childbirth educator
  • Augment the support they already provide as a birth professional (doula, lactation support, parenting educator, etc.)
  • Lead support groups
  • Speak on pregnancy & childbirth related topics
  • Teach private or group classes
  • Offer unbiased, non-judgmental information and support to childbearing families
  • Create their own curriculum within a broad and professional scope of practice
  • Equip pregnant mothers and their partners to make informed decisions regarding their pregnancy and birth with confidence

This training covers:

  • History & necessity of childbirth education
  • Learning styles & teaching techniques
  • Physiology & anatomy
  • Interventions
  • Labor & birth
  • Unexpected outcomes
  • Writing your own curriculum
  • Understanding current scientific literature
  • Hands-on teaching time
  • And MORE!

Walk away from this training with all of the basic tools you will need in order to teach in a hospital or other professional facility. Or, you can formulate your own class and teach independently. Either way, you will be ready to succeed in offering evidence-based excellence as a childbirth educator!
