Are You Ready to Become a New Parent Educator?
Why Certify as a CNPE?
New Parent Educators can be found working in a variety of different settings, helping educate new families. Many work at hospitals teaching Baby Care classes, some work in community clinics that support new parents, and others work within care provider offices or in private settings. But they all share the common goal of assisting and equipping families to make educated decisions about their babies.
If you are looking to add new parent education to your childbirth or breastfeeding classes–and want a certification that illustrates your commitment to non-judgmental, evidence-based education–the New Parent Educator program is for you. If you are already a prenatal educator, the activities and learning scenarios in this training will give you fresh ideas for your classes, increasing engagement and reinforcing your role as a facilitator of the learning process. If you are a birth or postpartum doula who wants to support new parents to make confident decisions, the New Parent Educator program will provide many ways to approach the hard questions that parents ask you every day. Whether you are a nurse on the postpartum floor caring for families in the tender newborn period, a Healthy Family home visitor educating families one on one, or a WIC Certifier working with young families to help them gain skills for confident parenting, the topics covered in the New Parent Educator program will inspire and equip you to both challenge and comfort new and expectant parents.
