I had an amazing experience at Birth Boot Camp training. I chose to go through Birth Boot Camp training so that I could get help with marketing and I am very impressed with all the resources we are given. Everything you could ever need to run your own business is already done for you. I would recommend any of my friends to take Birth Boot Camp training. Thank you for all the time and effort you put in for me to move forward with my dream to teach others how to have an amazing birth!


Birth Boot Camp is so amazing! I felt mostly prepared to start this journey before I attended the in-person training but when it was time to leave the training and start my business, I knew I was ready! They are so hands on and help you to feel confident.

"The certification is top-notch. The trainers are wonderful and truly accessible. The company itself gives a greater benefit and support to the individual as well as to their businesses. Having an organizational standard of care and training is a unique and structured approach to something which can be very nebulous."


“After the birth of my second baby (2019), I decided to become a certified Birth Boot Camp Instructor. There were many requirements to complete before the live training, but they were all preparatory and so educational. Then, when live training came, we all had most of the knowledge we needed for the weekend to flow well. We worked hard, and at the end we were tested. I have loved teaching classes and feel the training prepared me so well. I am now also a certified BBC Doula and had the same great experience!”


Become a certified Birth Boot Camp Childbirth Educator and be a light in your community!

Giving birth should be a life-changing event. Expecting parents deserve to be informed and know what their options are so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and their new baby. When we arm expectant parents with knowledge, confidence, and support, we will begin to transform birth! Childbirth education plays a critical role in improving birth for everyone!

  • 3 Days, 20+ hours of instruction
  • Support from your trainer and the Headquarters team
  • Receive all of the outlines for each of the classes
  • Birth videos

Due to COVID-19, what should I do about the required birth observations?

Covid-19 has made it difficult for trainees to attend their required birth observations. We are being very lenient about this requirement. We still want you to reach out to those in your community to try and find births to attend. Keep in contact with your trainer and let her know how things are going with this requirement. If needed, we can grant an extension so that you can complete this after attending the training workshop. Be sure to contact us with any further questions at [email protected].


If a registered applicant desires to change their original specified training date, a $250 fee will be applied. This fee must be paid in order to reserve the applicant’s spot in the newly chosen workshop. If it is not possible for a trainee to attend an in-person workshop, we do offer online workshops.


What is your personal life like? Do you have a newborn? Small children? Do you have a job outside the home? Do you have a lot of obligations?

Are you a fast reader? Are you familiar with the material? Are you already a birth professional? These are the people who are able to get through the workload within the deadline of 8 weeks before the workshop.

If you are brand new to birth work, are a slow reader, have a busy personal life, or have small children, you might need 4-6 months to complete the pre-workshop reading and study modules.

Set realistic goals for yourself. Enjoy the journey of getting certified. Remember, the more prepared you are coming to the workshop, the better equipped you will be to help couples work towards their amazing births.


Laptop/ipad for note taking and for the online exam, 2 bed pillows, comfortable clothing, a jacket or sweater, your own snacks and beverages


Keep in mind that there is a significant amount of work involved in this training. After your application has been approved, allow yourself plenty of time to complete all certification requirements. The study modules must be submitted three business days before the workshop. Certification should be completed within one year of applying.


Recertification is due each year at the end of March. The fee for recertification is $150. We include several requirements that will help you develop as a childbirth educator as well as grow your business.


Yes, instructors may be certified through (approved) organizations, as long as there is not a conflict of interest in your classes. We do expect our instructors to teach and use Birth Boot Camp materials when a class has been advertised as such, and only in such instances. For example, you may not use Birth Boot Camp materials (written, video, or otherwise) for a non-Birth Boot Camp class. We believe that our materials and support are the best in the industry and you will not feel the need to have or continue with another CBE certification.


We encourage long-term breastfeeding and want nursing mothers to be included. Training, however, is intensive and requires long hours and a quiet room, so that all who have invested their time and money can hear and participate. Training also requires that all be able to participate in relaxation and various other floor exercises. If you are nursing a baby you must make arrangements to have someone who can bring your baby to you for feedings. Additional space will not be provided at training for your baby and babysitter. This enables both the nursing mother and others in attendance to maximize their workshop experience. You may also choose to pump during training. Please discuss your breastfeeding/pumping needs with your trainer. There are multiple breaks built into the training as well as a 1.5 hour lunch break when you can nurse. Older children are not allowed at training.


Yes! Ongoing, daily support can be found on the Instructor/Doula Facebook Group. Our wonderful childbirth educators and doulas have formed an amazing support system there. Headquarters and members of the Advisory Board are available by email, at any time. We are thankful for our instructors and do all that we can to help and support them!

In addition, Birth Boot Camp is hosting a company-wide retreat every three years with the purpose of providing new information and helping Birth Boot Camp instructors and doulas stay motivated and excited about their birth business. Fees are kept to a minimum. You will not regret making an effort to be at every single Birth Boot Camp retreat.
