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


If you are applying for admission as a student please read the information on STUDENT ADMISSION before proceeding.

To begin the registration process:

  1. Complete the online registration form and confirm your agreement to the declaration.
  2. You are then given the opportunity to pay for your annual registration via a secure payment gateway.
  3. 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. A good quality photograph taken on a smart phone is acceptable.

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’.  Your Application for Admission will be reviewed before a link and password for the FEDANT Block Scheme Insurance application are emailed to you.  The review process may take up to 24 hours.

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

Completing the registration process:

Once your documentation has been received it will be verified and you will be issued your FEDANT  Registration documents. Your details will then be added to the FEDANT National Register and if you are using the FEDANT Block Scheme Insurance the policy will become valid.

An email with your username and password, which enables you to access the Registrant Login area, will be sent to you at the time your registration completes.  Resources such as logo and posters are available from this area.

Details for use of FEDANT logo are available of the Use of FEDANT logo page.
