The purpose of the CAPPA community 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, support, and educate the public on breastfeeding and related issues. When all requirements have been satisfactorily completed, candidates will be issued the CAPPA credential, Certified Community Lactation Educator, LE(C).

This program is distinct and separate from the CLE® program. While both the LE(C) and the CLE® provide families with support and education, the LE(C) is not qualified to lead group classes or facilitate a breastfeeding class. They are trained breastfeeding professionals that offer one on one breastfeeding support and education. The LE(C) also does not offer medical advice or provide lactation consulting or breastfeeding assessment. The LE(C) does receive extensive training in proper referral for families needing breastfeeding intervention.



Faculty: Laura Nance is the Senior Advisor of Postpartum Programs for CAPPA and the co-developer of the New Parent Educator program. Laura has been involved in the perinatal world since 2000 and is CAPPA certified and active in her community as a New Parent Educator, Childbirth Educator, Lactation Educator, Pregnancy Fitness Educator, Postpartum Doula, and Labor Doula. She has been a trainer with CAPPA since 2005 and trains for the postpartum doula and lactation educator programs in addition to the new parent educator program. She lives in the foothills of NC with her husband of over 25 years, her 2 college age children, one dog, and 3 cats (some say the cats are her favorite family members.) She enjoys travel, trail running, concerts, and reading. She is very passionate about educating new professionals and inspiring them to be confident teachers. Kimberly Bepler, IBCLC, CPD, CNPE, CLE® has been serving breastfeeding families since 2001, first as a postpartum doula, then as a breastfeeding educator, and finally as an IBCLC (certified in 2011). Kimberly has served thousands of mom and baby dyads (and tryads—her specialty is multiples) and she provides compassionate care helping each family reach their unique goals. Kimberly has taught postpartum doula trainings for CAPPA for 13 years, and decided to add Lactation Educator™ courses to help enrich the doulas who were looking for additional skills for families, as well as those seeking to teaching Breastfeeding in a hospital or community setting. She is very excited that this training fulfills the 20 hours of education required for Baby Friendly designation, and is looking forward to having medical and clinical professionals in attendance as she loves building bridges between talented people in all areas of care. She promises a fun an interactive training in learning something she is truly passionate about! She is a mother of 2 lively kids, and owns a doula service in Portland, OR.
