Attendance at our Hybrid 3-Day Accelerated training will give you all the skills and tools needed to launch your Birth Doula practice in your community– including the confidence!
This hybrid workshop provides the same valuable content as our 5-day in-person workshops, but over 3-days with more classroom hours each day. The Accelerated training begins with our Childbirth Education for the Birth Professional class which sets the foundation for your doula training. Held live over Zoom, attendance is a requirement to attending the 2-day in-person Doula Training workshop that follows this class.
SCHEDULE of this course to plan for:
Day Before: Pre-Workshop Virtual Meet-up — 6:30-7:30pm PST. All class participants and your trainer will meet virtually over Zoom the evening before the training begins to go over what to expect from the training and take time for personal introductions. This is a mandatory meeting, so please plan accordingly.
Day 1: Childbirth Education for the Birth Professional | HELD LIVE VIRTUALLY OVER ZOOM: 10am to 6:30pm. (1-hour break around 1:30pm.) This is a childbirth education class designed specifically for the Birth Professional. Participants will gain thorough knowledge of pregnancy, the labor and birth process, the postpartum period, and deepen and broaden their perspective of birth. Attendance fulfills the childbirth education requirement for DONA International certification. (DONA labels this class as “Introduction to Childbirth” or “Intro to Childbirth”)
Days 2 & 3: Birth Doula Training Workshop | HELD IN-PERSON: 9am to 6:30pm (1-hour break around 1pm) In addition to learning the Art of Childbirth Assisting, this unique, holistic, trauma-informed 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. Attendance satisfies the requirement for Birth Doula certification with DONA International.
“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.
