Childbirth International’s birth doula training and certification will cover everything you need to have the confidence and skills to accompany parents on the exciting journey of pregnancy and birth. Your training program includes four modules: Communication Skills; Physiology of Pregnancy, Birth, and Postpartum; Being a Birth Doula; Building Your Business. You will have the flexibility to study whenever or wherever you want with the online student website or printed paper course manuals.
Being a birth doula is so much more than encouraging words during labor. Most of the hard work is done well before labor ever starts! Choosing the right caregiver, preparing physically and emotionally for the arrival of a baby, dealing with unexpected events – all of these are things that a doula can help with. We make sure you have strong knowledge in all these areas and more. With ongoing support and guidance from your trainer together with a strong emphasis on evidence-based practice, you’ll be able to provide the very best support to your clients.
As with all our training programs, you’ll have access to a worldwide network of other birth doulas and trainers. Whether you need tips on finding clients, how to help a specific client problem, or ideas for balancing your work and personal life, you’ll find support and guidance. This support will continue even after you finish your training!
