Postpartum Doula Training

Our Postpartum Doula training is an opportunity to enhance and expand your understanding of the postpartum period.  We will focus on the transition to parenthood, creating effective postpartum plans, encouraging sleep for the entire family and creating connection between partners.  We will focus on the consequences of a traumatic birth, what you can do to support healing and making appropriate referrals.  We will discuss proactive strategies for women at risk of postpartum mood disorders as well as how to build an effective network of postpartum specialists and make referrals.  We will discuss the impact of returning to work and helping women prepare for this event.  You will leave training ready to take on clients with confidence!  You will receive support and encouragement throughout your certification process from your trainer and the DoulaBuilders team.  In addition, you will complete a mentoring session as you near completion of your certification requirements to help you map out a course to success!
