Welcome To NYC Lamaze

We are so glad you stopped by! If you are looking to begin the journey to becoming a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, you’ve come to the right place. We are an accredited program of Lamaze International and provide certification seminars and other educational opportunities, along with mentoring and support. Our seminars usually occur in Brooklyn, NY and Ocean Grove, NJ, but are currently virtual (via Zoom) due to the COVID-19 pandemic until further notice. We welcome candidates from all over the world and love learning from our participants.

The landscape of pregnancy, birth, and parenting in the United States is challenging to say the least. With a rising maternal death rate and unacceptable inequities in outcomes for people of color, especially Black people, we have our work cut out for us. Childbirth education is crucial for families to have safe and healthy births that are positive experiences. They deserve nothing less. We need childbirth educators that represent the community that they serve, and to increase access to education and support in under-resourced communities. Some scholarships are available to people from under-represented communities in the childbirth education field, especially those who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

You will become familiar with the process, fees for the Lamaze Learning Guide and certification exam, and much more.
