CAPPA Certified Childbirth Educators

Are you passionate about working with babies and pregnant individuals? If family-centred maternity care attracts you, then our Childbirth Educator Certification program with CAPPA is the best choice for your next career move. Childbirth And Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA) will provide you with all the knowledge required to become a Childbirth Educator. Our mission is to equip you with excellent skills to facilitate expectant parents physically and mentally for all their upcoming milestones from pregnancy, labour and birth, and postpartum.

Why CAPPA Childbirth Educators Certification?

Becoming a childbirth educator is rewarding and fulfilling, a career that can make a significant impact on the lives of expectant parents. As a childbirth educator, you will have the opportunity to educate and empower families with the knowledge and confidence needed to make informed decisions about their birth experiences.  Furthermore, good prenatal education sets the stage for successful early parenting, which is the most important period in a child’s life.

Harvard’s Centre On the Developing Child stated that:

“healthy development in the early years (particularly birth to three) provides the building blocks for educational achievement, economic productivity, responsible citizenship, lifelong health, strong communities, and successful parenting of the next generation.”

The first three years of life are the most impactful in a child’s life. Giving birth is an unforgettable experience and an important life transition. Positive experience in childbirth presents a unique and powerful opportunity for early healthy attachment between parents and newborns.

Our goal is to offer you this amazing expert-level training so you can support new parents in their life transition. Additionally, the demand for qualified childbirth educators is growing, providing a stable and rewarding career path. 

This Childbirth Educator training fulfills part of the certification process to become a CCCE (CAPPA Certified Childbirth Educator). A respected credential recognized in North America enables you to teach childbirth classes in Canada and the U.S.


Who is this CAPPA Childbirth Educators Certification training suitable for?

Passion for Maternal Health and Newborn Well-being

If you’re passionate about promoting maternal health and the well-being of newborns, enjoy working with pregnant individuals and newborns, and want to help families explore their birth values, understand the birth process, and choose the best birth options, then this training is for you. Your role involves offering expecting families non-biased perinatal information and guiding them toward a satisfying birth experience while also setting the stage for secure attachment and healthy child development. This program is an excellent opportunity to put your passion into practice.

Be Your Own Boss

If you dream of being your own boss, becoming a childbirth educator offers the freedom and autonomy you seek. This career path provides flexibility, making it ideal for those seeking to balance work and family life while pursuing their entrepreneurial aspirations.

Second Career Opportunity for Healthcare Professionals

For healthcare professionals considering a second career, our CCCE training program offers an accelerated path. Professionals such as doulas, lactation consultants, nurses, midwives, chiropractors, and childbirth educators from DONA can leverage their background knowledge and expand their services or transition entirely into childbirth education. The choice is yours, and the accelerated program allows you to complete the training one year faster than the Traditional Stream.

Utilize Your Healthcare Knowledge from Abroad

Internationally trained healthcare workers, including doctors, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, and acupuncturists, are welcomed to join our training. Your expertise in healthcare will be a valuable asset in the childbirth field, especially as you serve diverse cultural communities. You may also be eligible for our accelerated program, making it easier to transition into this new profession.

Staff Development for Community Organizations

Community organizations seeking to enhance the professional capacity of their staff will find value in our training. If you lack educators to serve your prenatal clients, having your own childbirth educators on-site can streamline your services. By cultivating the potential of your staff through professional development, you can improve staff retention and continue to support pregnant women in your community through prenatal classes and personalized guidance. Consider this training as a valuable opportunity for your staff to acquire new skills and competencies while benefiting your organization’s goals.

In a nutshell

You can contribute to the birthing communities in many different ways. Not only do expecting parents need your guidance to maximize their mental and physical health, but newborns can also benefit from developing a secure attachment right from the start!

Caring for Kids, Canadian Pediatric Society, stated Attachment is a connection for life.

“Secure or healthy attachment is the foundation that lets your child explore the world and have a safe place to come back to…Attachment is essential to long-term emotional health…it also helps your child learn how to trust other people, so it’s an important part of developing healthy relationships later in life.”

Work together and build a better beginning for the next generation.
