Attendance at our Hybrid 5-Day Birth Doula 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 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 in-person 3-day Doula Training workshop that follows. Attendance at this 5-day workshop fulfills two of your birth doula certification requirements with DONA International– your CBE + your birth doula training requirements.
SCHEDULE of this course to plan for:
Days 1 & 2: Childbirth Education for the Birth Professional | HELD LIVE VIRTUALLY OVER ZOOM: 10am to 3pm. (1/2 hour break around 1pm each day.) 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 childbirth. Attendance fulfills the childbirth education requirement for DONA International certification. (DONA labels this class as “Introduction to Childbirth” or “Intro to Childbirth”)
Days 3-5: Birth Doula Workshop | HELD IN-PERSON: 10am to 5pm daily (1-hour break around 1pm each day.) 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 at this workshop 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.
