This 10-week live online training course is designed for people who learn best when content is offered in shorter segments, or for people 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

“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.
