Welcome to NACEF


NACEF, Northwest Area Childbirth Educators Forum, is an independent, non-profit, volunteer organization comprised of those who are advocates for the family and to promote current issues in maternal-child health and wellness.

NACEF’s purpose is to further the quality of childbirth education through strengthening the bonds between educators, family members, care providers and the organizations they represent.


Every year our Board dedicates itself to creating an event that will uplift and support birth workers and childbirth educators in the Pacific Northwest. In the past we have held like an annual conferences with guest speakers like Elly Taylor (author of Becoming Us), James McKenna, Penny Simkin and many local resources.

This year is different

This year we’re taking the time to come to local organizations to hear them; to hear their needs to make this work effective for the families they serve and their own families; to hear what sort of training opportunities they are seeking; and to hear how we as a whole can work together more collaboratively.


If your organization would like to be heard, reach out and let us know!
