Why Certify as a CNPE?
Expecting and new parents in this day and time experience a combination of information overload and support neglect, leading to a lack of confidence as they begin this very important time of their lives. Certified New Parent Educators (CNPEs) provide evidence based information to families and communities to support a positive and empowered postpartum and newborn period. New Parent Educators are found teaching in community and hospital based classes, public health clinics, care-providers offices, and private settings.
The CAPPA CNPE is a non-clinical professional and therefor does not dispense medical advice, diagnose medical conditions, perform clinical procedures, or prescribe/administer treatments of any kind. The CNPE offers appropriate referrals when their observance uncovers situations that require healthcare attention or support.
This training is taught by Katie Nyberg, CLD, CPD, CNPE. Katie is the CAPPA Senior Program Advisor for the Labor Doula Program and also contributes to the Postpartum Doula Training curriculum. Katie has been a certified labor and postpartum doula since 2010.
