Newborn Care

Advanced Newborn Care Training & Certification

You're already a certified Newborn Care Specialist or Expert. Now are you ready to take a deep dive into newborn and postpartum maternal care?
The difference between the two is that an Advanced Newborn Care Expert has received additional training in recognizing infant and maternal emergencies, along with techniques that can be applied to helping to educate new parents. This advanced certification will make you more marketable by understanding how you can best assist the newborn AND mom.
