Postpartum Doula Training

A Three-Day Intensive, Interactive Workshop

Our Postpartum Doula Training is designed to empower postpartum doulas in supporting families when an infant has complex care needs and in helping parents find harmony in a new household. When families are delayed in or won’t be bringing home a baby, our postpartum doulas specialize in nurturing the family through their grief and adjustment process. This three-day in-person workshop covers key topics and support techniques to help postpartum doulas better serve their client families.

Why Postpartum Doulas Matter

Why Postpartum Doulaing Matters to the Healthy Growth & Development of Babies

Our best research shows these first months influence the first years together. Making an investment now in parent baby relationships pays off immensely in later years. Children who are sensitively parented and securely attached live more satisfying lives, achieve more, and have more stable relationships. When parents learn their new baby’s personality, communication cues, and preferences, their relationship develops with increased depth and meaning and confidence in their parenting choices increase. As a postpartum doula, you can help new parents and changing families set healthy habits and better manage the postpartum period.
