"My favorite thing about CAPPA - truly there are so many things. They offer on going continuing education, when ever I have called the office or emailed to ask a question, I always get an answer quickly. The community of like-minded people who come together for the purpose of educating and supporting helping new families get off to the best start. Over the last year CAPPA has been ungoing some amazing changes and transformations. As an organization they are working hard to steer our programs to be packed with the most current up to date evidence based information on all areas of the perinatal.
