Certification as a Birth Doula or Postpartum Doula?

Many people ask if the training is for birth doula or postpartum doula certification and the simple answer is that it will train you in both. You will have the power to choose which one you'd like to be based on what fits for your life. So, in a sense, you are getting two trainings in one. If you are in the middle of raising small children or have a full time job that isn't very flexible, you may need to have your doula life more structured, so being a postpartum doula might be the right answer for you.  If you have more available time to focus on pregnancy and being on-call for births, you can spend more time working as a birth doula.

 

There is freedom and flexibility in this work...choose where your passion lies and what works best for you and your family.

The Business Savvy Doula Course is designed to help teach you the business aspect of being a doula!

The Doula Alliance training fully teaches you the business aspect of starting and running a your own successful business as a professional labor support person.  We answer the, "I took the training, now what?" question!

After you go through the training we want to keep in touch with you, mentor you, and allow you a space where you can find comfort and support.  We also teach you how to create or get plugged into a good support system in your community; which will give you an opportunity for birth shadowing, continued education, and place to debrief after a birth. 

 

We support new doulas with as much love and care as we do with the new mothers we work with. 

We are excited about the growth of this profession everywhere! We will make sure to provide the tools, education, and support you will need for your doula journey and help you grow as a high-integrity birth worker so that the term ‘doula’ is held in high regard in your community.
