The International Childbirth Education Association, a nonprofit organization founded in 1960, is an autonomous certifying body governed by an elected volunteer board of directors. ICEA certified professionals are trained to provide family-centered perinatal care and to promote the freedom of choice based on knowledge of alternatives in childbirth.
We educate, certify and create a community of professionals working to increase global access to safe, culturally respectful family-centered perinatal care.
A world where perinatal professionals are recognized and valued in the healthcare community for their specific skills and training to prepare and support all families.
These professionals create a culture where expectant families are safe, respected, and able to make informed decisions based on best evidence.
Help us ensure that every person has access to respectful, family-centered perinatal care.
