Birth and Post Natal Doula Training
Doula training is possible throughout Australia and the world with the Australian Doula College.
The twenty modules that make up our comprehensive training can be delivered to you in a variety of ways. We currently run face to face classes in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. We cover many aspects of pregnancy, starting at conception, the mechanics of labour, feelings, possible fears and challenges for parents, homebirth, hospital policies and procedures, post natal issues, breastfeeding and postnatal doula-ring.
Our course becomes a journey for the doula and offers a holistic approach to pregnancy and birth and an opportunity for the doula to grow and understand how her life experiences and her beliefs can impact on the birthing woman and her partner.
We believe that it is essential to understand your own vulnerabilities and fears in order to be able to assist others though theirs. This is an intricate part of the course.
Our classes are kept small and intimate giving the trainees a safe space to share and get the most out of classes. Classes are informative, fun and set in a relaxed atmosphere. Information is provided though our weekly workbooks and most workbooks are accompanied by a relevant DVD and/or CD.
All of our facilitators and educators are doulas and all hold a Cert IV in Training and Assessment. Collectively, as doulas and educators we have over 100 years experience in birth and the post natal period. Our students are extremely well supported during the course and while undertaking their training births and have a trainer on call for them 24 hours, seven days a week.
If you have been thinking about becoming a doula then we would love to talk to you………..Our doula training is different to the others and we would be honoured for you to share your doula journey with us!
