ADC Membership/Mentorship Program

At the Australian Doula College we strongly believe in the importance of ongoing support and education for our experienced doulas. It is equally as important for women and their families to know that their doula is updating her skills regularly and is a part of a trusted and supportive organisation. Being a member of the ADC is a great way to remain supported and mentored while you are working as a doula.

It is possible to join our organisation once you have completed the ADC Doula training or the Preparing the Way one and three day workshops.

Our membership/mentorship program includes:  

Access to the ADC on-call phone:

Extremely handy and comforting to have the support of the mothership as you are at births or with post natal clients.

Support from our office:

Whether you need to debrief a birth, or you need some general advise, we are here for you.

Your photo and bio on our website:

We are often called on by pregnant and post natal women, the media, other industry leaders about doulas who are working and available for work. Having your photo and profile on our site is a great way to continue your exposure out in the marketplace.

Client referrals:

Our job board is constantly updated and worked on. Our Doula Services Manager matches up potential clients with working ADC doulas.

An ADC membership doula/client agreement for your use:

Drafted by our lawyers, this agreement is great for you to have on hand and be able to use.

Use of the ADC membership logo:

You can use this on your website, letting people know that you are affiliated with the ADC.

Monthly webinars:

We have some wonderful webinars planned for this year.

Professional debriefing/supervision:

Absolutely invaluable as you work with clients. Being a Birth or Post Partum Doula can be triggering and not all clients are easy. Being able to debrief and get some professional feedback or peer review is essential in this work.

Your yearly investment for all this is only $165.00 (inc GST) and is a tax deduction for you:

Please contact us for further information, we’d love to have you on board.
