What We Love!

We provide training, but really we’re in the business of helping you be who you want to be, professionally and personally.

At the end of the day, nothing makes us happier than seeing students grow into awesome birth and lactation professionals with the confidence and skills to support new families in discovering their own path.

We believe in making your road to certification simple and giving you the freedom to define your own journey.

My training with CBI has opened my eyes to new perspectives. I learned more than just labor and birth but also so much about myself. With personalized feedback and a hands-on approach, CBI eased my anxiety about approaching a new field by providing me with plenty of resources in order for me to succeed.

Knowing and understanding options changes everything

Too often parents begin their journey with fear and uncertainty. They need knowledge and skills to determine their own direction and have the experiences that they know are right for them.

We want all doulas, childbirth educators, and lactation counselors to really know how to help families navigate their own path and give them the foundation they need to achieve their goals. That’s why we provide you with information, skills, and guidance so that you feel prepared to walk with families on that path.

Training Without Boundaries

Training without boundaries means there is nothing getting in the way of you pursuing your passion. Study from anywhere at a time that works for you. That might mean a coffee shop, sitting in bed in your pj’s, or using our mobile app while sitting in the garden.

You’ll have no limits placed on your training and can take as long as you need while having the support of your trainer throughout that time. You’re able to submit your assignments in a variety of formats – choose what works for you.

Course costs are all-inclusive and you’ll never be asked to recertify or pay for membership. You can access your course whether you’re paying in one simple payment or with a five-month payment plan. We believe training should be accessible for everyone and is evidence-informed, comprehensive, and fun!
