Because the little things matter

Postpartum Doula Training

Bringing a new baby home comes with a bundle of joy and a lot of unanswered questions. Having a postpartum doula to rely on for assistance and resources can help smooth the transition of having a new little one in the home.  Helping mom understand the changes in body and healing along with guidance to recognize the newborns need around feeding and sleeping will help the family feel more settled and confident.  Doulas work with the whole family, dads/partners and even other children.  They can help with emotions, debriefing the birth, filling in needed information to successfully breastfeed (or offer a resource of someone who can help) and much more.

If you have a heart and passion for working with new families, consider becoming a certified Postpartum Doula. Our ICEA-approved workshops provide the necessary training for certification. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Focus on mother’s physical recovery
  2. Learn about postpartum emotions for mom (and dad)
  3. Recognize the family dynamics
  4. Discuss newborn appearance and baby care
  5. Discover breastfeeding and alternative feeding teaching methods
  6. Build listening and communication skills
  7. Learn business aspects and responsibility
  8. Review ICEA history and the certification process
  9. Identify how to replenish the doula spirit and maintain the passion

This workshop will provide a wealth of ideas and practical knowledge as you embark on your journey to becoming a doula. Contact us for more information or choose from a workshop below. If there’s no workshop scheduled in your area, let us know—we may be able to bring one to you!
