Registration Process

It is best practice for healthcare professionals to be externally regulated.

Admission to the National Register is open to:

  • Antenatal Educators
  • Breastfeeding Counsellors
  • Doulas
  • Postnatal Practitioners
  • CAM Practitioners

To begin the registration process:

  1. Choose your category of registration.
  2. Filled in the online registration form and confirm your agreement to the declaration.
  3. You are then given the opportunity to pay for your annual registration via a secure payment gateway.
  4. Prepare documents – awards with a different surname will require evidence of name change i.e copy of marriage certificate.


Evidence will be required for all qualifications you wish to have listed on the National Register along with evidence of insurance covering you for these qualifications.

Evidence of insurance is a requirement for admission to the National Register.  You may choose to use the reduced rate FEDANT Block Scheme Insurance (£47.82).  You are not required to use the FEDANT Block Scheme, this facility has been negotiated with the insurance providers to facilitate a significant reduction in the cost of premiums for those evidencing a lower risk by achieving admission.

Select the option I am applying for FEDANT Block Scheme Insurance and visit the insurance page to complete your insurance proposal AFTER completing the on-line section of your application for admission.  Once you have received and checked your insurance documents, forward a copy of them to as part of your evidence for admission. A good quality photograph taken on a smart phone and emailed direct from the phone is acceptable.

If you have your own insurance, you will be required to provide a copy of your certificate of insurance.

To complete the registration process:

Documentation should be sent to us either by fax (0870 879 3528) or email.
