What does the CAPPA Childbirth Educator Training cover?
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!)

- Offer unbiased, non-judgmental information and support to childbearing families
