This 10-week live online training course is designed for those who learn best when content is offered in shorter segments, or those with other commitments during the week day or weekend. Our weekly classes provide the same valuable content as our 3 and 5 day workshops, but over several weeks. Course work is assigned in-between some of the classes, which frees up time for us to take a much deeper dive into topics during class time– this makes our 10-week training course much more comprehensive. Attendance at this series fulfills two of your requirements for birth doula certification with DONA International—your childbirth education + Birth Doula training requirements.

WHEN: Tuesdays | 6 pm to 8:30 pm PST | Held live online over Zoom

During this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Provide highly effective labor, birth, and postpartum care and support.
  • Support mothers and their partners in their choices while providing consistent emotional and physical care during their birthing experience.
  • Provide continuous support and care when interventions and/or medication become necessary.
  • Conduct prenatal and postpartum visits with clients.
  • Develop your own private doula practice.
  • Market and promote yourself as a professional doula.

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.

To prepare for attending this live online workshop:

  • Make sure you have a quiet, undisturbed environment where you’re not preoccupied or distracted by driving, riding in a car, walking, etc. If you have small children, please have a care person to attend to them to avoid distractions.
  • You’ll need to have a reliable Internet connection for the duration of the entire online course. Be sure to keep your video on at all times while the classes are in session so you’re visible on camera. Missing any portion of the live virtual workshop may result in forfeiting your certificate of attendance.
  • Please use a laptop or desktop for the best experience. If you try to use an iPad or phone you will not see all group participants and may miss interactive elements like videos and small group activities. You can sign up for a free Zoom account at www.zoom.us

“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.
