Congratulations on your interest in becoming a Birth Doula! You will soon experience the amazing joy of the special impact you will have working with families in your area.

Doula School has been training doulas for over a decade! We offer a DONA approved birth doula training workshop and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator Program.

Anyone who has a willingness to help families through birth can become a birth doula or a childbirth educator. Though it’s helpful, it’s not necessary to have a background in health or medicine. Keep in mind that a doula is a non-medical professional.


Our priority is to provide a training where everyone feels welcome and among peers. Our training is based on principles of anti-racism, inclusion, anti-oppression and the value of diversity and inclusion. We want our trainings to be a safe space for all and these values form the foundation of our training content. We want our profession to become more diverse to be able to support all families in a way that is culturally relevant to them. Be sure to check-out our scholarship opportunities for BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ people.
