Do you feel called to serve birthing families in your community? Become trained as a Birth Doula with this 3-day comprehensive workshop.
This live workshop is held virtually over Zoom and provides the same valuable content as our 5-day in-person workshops – from the comfort of your own home! Attendance at this 3-day workshop fulfills two birth doula certification requirements with DONA International: the Childbirth Education + the Birth Doula requirements.
Tuition also includes the option of attending one of our in-person Comfort Measures for Birth Professionals classes at no extra cost.
Day 1: Childbirth Education for the Birth Professional – 10 am to 6:30 pm Pacific Time
This is a childbirth education class designed specifically for the Birth Professional and lays the foundation for learning the skills of doula support. Participants will gain a thorough knowledge of pregnancy and the labor and birth process and deepen and broaden their perspective of birth. (Note: this class is called “Introduction to Childbirth” on the DONA website.) Attendance satisfies DONA International’s childbirth education certification requirement.
Days 2 & 3: Birth Doula Workshop – 9 am to 6:30 pm Pacific Time each day
In addition to learning the Art of Childbirth Assisting, this unique 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.”
Attendance at this workshop satisfies the requirement for Birth Doula certification with DONA International.
