Our in-person postpartum trainings are very popular and fill fast! This training is experiential and interactive, providing participants with a broad-based learning experience of evidence-based information. Enrollment is limited to a small group to create a personalized learning experience, so early enrollment is highly encouraged.

Workshop hours: Daily 8:30am to 6:30pm PST

This course often becomes the beginning of a new career as a postpartum doula, or it can complement your current work. Attendance will provide all the confidence and training you need to work in this rewarding career and is the first step toward becoming a DONA International certified doula. There are no prerequisites.

Attendance at this comprehensive workshop fulfills two steps toward certification as a Postpartum Doula with DONA International– your postpartum doula training + the additional lactation course required for certification.

At Sierra Childbirth Institute, participants learn in an environment that fosters self-growth while providing both didactic and hands-on experience. During this workshop you will gain in-depth knowledge about the role of a doula during the postpartum period as well as an understanding of the emotional experience of birth and life with a newborn.

The Course Curriculum:

Throughout the class participants will engage in exercises, activities, and discussions designed to integrate new information with personal and professional experiences. The course covers the basics of postpartum care from a doula’s perspective. The training will support the doula in developing a Postpartum Plan that fosters a client’s personal parenting style as the expert of their own baby and nourishes the parents through this special transition time.
