SCHEDULE of this course to plan for:
Day Before: Pre-Workshop Virtual Meet-up — 6:30-7:30pm PST.

This is a mandatory meeting, so please plan accordingly.

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 CBE class”)
Days 2 & 3: Birth Doula Training Workshop | HELD LIVE VIRTUALLY OVER ZOOM: 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.

Attendance satisfies the requirement for Birth Doula certification with DONA International.
To prepare for attending this live, virtual 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.
“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.
