Why take a Doulaing The Doula three day face to face training?

  • Over 99% of DTD training participants feel confident and prepared to begin doulaing by the completion of the course.
  • Doula skills are adaptable to many settings, birth experiences, and outcomes.
  • Amy is dedicated to providing an individual experience at your training! Each one is different because of the people who attend.
  • Whole brain learning! The course is designed using modern teaching methods that involve and engage the learner. You don’t just sit and take notes. Instead you’ll be moving around the room, doing small group activities, and having fun. People learn best in social environments, when they feel a sense of purpose and can show mastery over the new skills they’ve learned.
  • The printed manual is 270 plus pages of useful handouts and reference materials, with an additional 30 pages of PDFs.
  • You’ll meet people who are different from you who also want to learn doula skills! Doulas are needed in every community. Only by working together can we help to spread the word that people’s emotional needs in labor are important.
  • All parents birthing babies are respected and so are the wide range of choices people make. But that may not be easy to implement in real life! So we learn how to do that together in a safe way, and figure out our own personal limits. (No one is the best doula for everyone! Not even me!)
  • Evidence based skills! You learn what works and why, from someone who reads new scientific literature on a monthly basis.
  • Three days! Studies of behavioral change from Stanford University show that it takes three days to create lasting change, cement new skills, and transform attitudes. Doulaing can be a profession, a lifestyle, and an approach to life that incorporates acceptance and compassion. That one extra day is what cements learning and brings about those 99% confidence levels.
  • Current issues! We discuss obstetrical trends and social justice issues in a safe and respectful way for all attendees. You’ll leave knowing more about what to expect in social media, and how to use your energy to transform birth for all kinds of laboring families

The workshop prepared me so much more than I ever thought possible and ever would have learned otherwise - not only in technical skills, but in my faith in birth, life, myself and others.
