What sets this Live, Virtual Postpartum Doula training apart?

~ A dynamic, interactive online learning environment featuring group brainstorming and discussion, role play, and small group breakout activities... we have FUN! 

~ A DONA International approved, evidence-based curriculum

~ A trainer with over 29 years of hands-on birth and postpartum doula experience, teaching adult learners, and mentoring small business owners & new doulas

~ You will be challenged! We look at our innate biases, institutionalized racism within birth/postpartum, cultural humility, trauma-informed communication, social justice issues, and how to handle sticky situations

~ You will gain the necessary skills to navigate many different postpartum scenarios, some of which are life skills that can be applied far beyond doula work

~ We create connections that can last a lifetime, while offering individualized support as needed

~ Each workshop is tailored to meet the primary needs of the group while covering the information you will need in order to provide the best possible support to new families of all shapes and sizes

~ This is an inclusive training that welcomes all family structures, races/ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, religions, and sexual orientations. Postpartum Doulas are needed in all communities!

Topics covered include:

Postpartum Support Basics, The Significance of a Doula, The Business of Being a Doula, Communication Skills and Crossing Cultures, Disparities in Maternal/Parental Healthcare, The Impact of Birth on Postpartum, Educating Clients & Making Referrals, Integrating a Baby into the Family, Sleep, Babywearing and Soothing Techniques, Perinatal Mental Health, Multiples, Loss and Grief, Infant Feeding, the DONA Certification Process, and more.

The days will flow as follows:

** On Day 1, please log in by 8:20 AM Eastern Time to make sure your Zoom technology is working and to settle in.                        

The training will run from 8:30 AM until 6:30 PM Eastern Time each day. We will have a 30 minute lunch break and two 15 minute breaks. I want you to be comfortable throughout our long days, so we will also take lots of quick stretch breaks.

There are no prerequisites to attend the workshop. However, in order to participate, you must have:

- Access to high speed internet

- The ability to use Zoom

- A gmail account to access Google Classroom for assignments, group activities, handouts, and resources.

- A quiet, private space to be on camera during the entire training; this is a DONA requirement for certification.

**This Postpartum Doula Training workshop is designed to train professional Postpartum Doulas and is only one of the steps in the certification process for Doulas of North America International (DONA).  Certificates cannot be issued for partial attendance. 

Refund Policy:

Refunds can be issued up to one month prior to the training, minus a 20% non-refundable deposit. No refunds within one month of the training. If a conflict or emergency arises, you may apply your registration to another Postpartum Doula Training within one year, for a $75 transfer fee.
