They Loved Their Training


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.


I highly recommend the childbirth educator training! It's so detailed and has made me even more excited to teach!


I recently became a certified birth boot camp instructor! It has been a really great exercise and I am so exciting to start teaching. For my training I took all the online birthing classes and I really enjoyed them. They are teach good true information that all moms and dads should have going into birth! Whether you know a little or a lot these will be a great addition to your knowledge.

They Loved Their Training


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!


This has been such a great experience. I am so excited to be a part of the Birth Boot Camp community.


Thank you everyone who puts so much effort into training us, you all are wonderful, and doing a great work!!

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!

  • Access to the Headquarters Team

Should I choose the online or in-person training? Which is best?

Both training options are great, one is not better than the other, just what makes the most sense for you! 


If you work best with a hard deadline and accountability, enjoy meeting new people, benefit from hands-on training, and have the flexibility to be away for 3 days, then an in-person training would be great for you! 


If you have a busy lifestyle, small children, you are a self starter, work best on your own and in your own time, then the online training would be great for you! You have one year to complete the online training once you register.

Consider how you work best and which options best meet your educational needs.

What if I can’t attend the workshop I am registered for?

If you need to change from the workshop you originally signed up for to a new workshop, you will need to notify your trainer and contact the certification coordinator at [email protected]. There is a $300 transfer fee that must be paid in order to reserve your spot in a new workshop. If it is not possible to attend an in-person workshop, you may choose to switch the online training and the $300 fee applies. Access to your training portal will be removed until the fee is paid and you choose a new workshop.

How much time will it take to complete the training modules?

The answer to this question solely depends on you and how your life is currently set up. If you have small children, a full time job outside of the home, a busy personal life, brand new to birth work, or a slower reader, it may take 4-6 months to complete all the training modules. 


If you are a fast reader, already in birth work and familiar with the material, or have the ability to set aside large blocks of time to work on it, then you may be able to get through the workload within the deadline of 8 weeks before the workshop.


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

Online trainees have one year to complete the training. If you need more time, we offer a 3 month extension for $175. 

What do I do with my training modules once I’m finished?

In-Person Training Workshops: Your modules are due to your trainer 10 days prior to the workshop. Your trainer will review your modules and send back any work that needs to be corrected or completed. Revisions are due back to your trainer 2 days before the workshop.

Online Training: Your training modules are due BEFORE your training expires (one year from the date you registered) When you have completed all of your training modules, you will email them to the Certification Coordinator. It can take up to 2 weeks for your modules to be looked over and corrections sent back.

What do I need to bring to the workshop?

Laptop/ipad that can connect to WiFi, notebook for note taking,  2 bed pillows, yoga mat, comfortable clothing, a jacket or sweater, your own snacks and beverages.

How long do I have to complete my certification?

Keep in mind that there is a significant amount of work involved in this training. There are books to read, documentaries and other videos to watch, the bloodborne pathogens trainings, and more to complete. Allow yourself plenty of time to complete all of the modules!

If attending an in-person training, your training modules are due to your trainer no later than 10 days before your workshop.

When is recertification due and what is required?

Recertification is due each year on March 31st.  The fee for recertification is $150. We include several educational requirements that will help you develop as a childbirth educator as well as grow your business.

Can I be certified with another organization?

Yes, Birth Boot Camp Instructors may be certified with other  organizations, as long as there is not a conflict of interests. Instructors are expected to teach and use the Birth Boot Camp outlines, materials, videos, or otherwise for Birth Boot Camp classes only.

Can I bring my baby to the in-person workshop?

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.
