    Renew Your LCCE Certification


    Your Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE) certification is the highest standard in childbirth education, a symbol of your specialized skill and experience to colleagues and expectant parents.

    Every three years, you must submit a recertification application along with 25 contact hours to renew your childbirth educator certification. Don’t let your hard-earned certification lapse: recertify now.

    • If more than one-and-a-half years have passed since your recertification date, you must re-take the Certification Exam to recertify.
    • If less than one-and-a-half years have passed since your recertification date, you can recertify by submitting 25 contact hours, plus additional hours depending on how long your certification has lapsed:
