Doula Training


Being a birth doula is more than just encouraging words and massaging a woman’s back during labor. It’s helping a woman feel confident, comfortable and empowered in her birthing situation. Becoming a Doula will help give you the knowledge and expertise to help women with the physical and emotional challenges of labor and birth and foster ongoing support and guidance.
