Our 5-day in-person workshop is our most popular training! This workshop begins with our 2-day Childbirth Education for the Birth Professional class followed by three days of birth doula training. Attendance fulfills two birth doula certification requirements with DONA International– the CBE + the birth doula requirements.

Instructor: Janine Maitri, Birth Doula Trainer (DONA) Janine brings 40 years of experience to her classes and workshops. She’s witnessed and participated in the development and evolution of the doula profession since it began and has been training people in the Art of Childbirth Assisting since the early 1980’s when doulas were known as Childbirth Assistants or Labor Companions. She is an advanced continuing education provider with DONA International and has been a DONA-approved birth doula trainer for 25+ years. Janine is passionate about helping doulas excel as respected and valued professionals on the maternity health care team.

SCHEDULE to plan for:

Days 1 & 2: Childbirth Education for the Birth Professional – 10am to 5pm daily
This is a childbirth education class designed specifically for the Birth Professional and lays the foundation for learning the skills of doula support. Participants will gain a thorough knowledge of pregnancy and the labor and birth process and deepen and broaden their perspective of birth. Attendance satisfies DONA International’s childbirth education certification requirement.

Days 3-5: Birth Doula Workshop – 10am to 5pm daily
In addition to learning the Art of Childbirth Assisting, this unique training workshop provides an exploration of historical and conventional paradigms around childbirth. You’ll learn the special role of Birth Doulas and how we can help women and families return to the ancient wisdom of birthing and parenting.

“Doula care is presented as a return to the community-based, woman-centered care that existed prior to the shift from home to hospital births. As such, the training demonstrates how woman-centered support can reclaim a place within medicalized childbirth in Western cultures. Doulas learn about the birth process, medical issues that can arise, ways to support laboring women physically and emotionally, and how to advocate with and for a patient in a hospital environment.” ~ Dr. Christine Morton, author of Birth Ambassadors.
