Childbirth Educator Certification

Many hospitals and childbirth education organizations require that their educators complete a certification process before beginning to teach.

After our training, you have the option of certifying with Great Starts or with ICEA (International Childbirth Education Association).

The certification process involves:

  • Observing 2 or more births
  • Observing another instructor teaching childbirth education classes
  • Student teaching a class series while being observed and evaluated by another instructor
  • Taking a certification exam
  • Paying a fee (Great Starts fee is $150).
