This 10-week virtual 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 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 and Birth Doula training requirements.

During this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Provide highly effective labor, breastfeeding, and postpartum care and support.
  • Support mothers and their partners in their choices while providing consistent emotional and physical care during their birthing experience.
  • Provide continuous support and care when technology and or medication become necessary.
  • Conduct prenatal and postpartum visits with clients.
  • Develop your own private doula service.
  • Market and promote yourself as a professional doula.

“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.
