Welcome to Doula School
Congratulations on your interest in becoming a Doula! You will soon experience the amazing joy of the special impact you will have working with families in your area. For more than 19 years I have had the privilege of attending births, and training others to do the same.
For more than a decade, Doula School has been training doulas, offering DONA International approved birth and postpartum doula training workshops and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator Seminar. Anyone who has a willingness to help families through birth and early parenthood can become a doula or a childbirth educator.
We believe that through positive birth experiences, birthing people, children and families can be happier, healthier and closer. Our mission at Doula School is to train and mentor the next generation of birth workers. We can’t wait to meet you.
