Ever thought about becoming a postpartum doula or lactation educator? Now we have training sessions set up here in Knoxville, so no traveling. (unless you live outside Knoxville that is
). I personally have wanted to do this for a few years now, but didn't want to leave my family and travel out of state for the weekend.
Tennesse now has 2 new CAPPA doula/lactation educator trainers in TN and they are coming to Knoxville. Here is the info for both, if you are interested please contact either the trainer OR me as I am setting it all up (I live in Knoxville). You can just PM or e-mail me with any questions. Space will be limited as the meeting room is not that large, this info will be posted to several moms groups, the birth center and all the local hospitals among other spots. I am posting it here first though.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------CAPPA CLE Program
The purpose of the CAPPA lactation educator program is to provide childbirth professionals comprehensive training in breastfeeding education. When a candidate completes the certification program, they will be qualified to teach and educate the public on breastfeeding and related issues. When all requirements have been satisfactorily completed candidates will be issued the CAPPA credential “ CLE ” Certified lactation educator. This program does not issue lactation consultant status nor will the participant be qualified to sit for the IBCLC exam.
CAPPA’s Position on Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding is undeniably best and should be
strongly encouraged. All families should have the opportunity to become educated as to why breastfeeding is best for both mother and baby.
They should also be encouraged to attend a
breastfeeding class and support group while they are still pregnant so that they may make an informed decision about infant feeding. Many
parents, when they become educated, will want to breastfeed, but it is important to recognize that there are many reasons why some cannot or choose not to do so. It is not the place of the Lactation Educator to create guilt surrounding infant feeding, but rather to educate parents so that they may make truly informed decisions. CAPPA supplies the highest quality of training, to ensure that Certified Lactation Educators meet the diverse informational needs of the public.
