Doula Training

Conscious Birthing Doula Training Courses are based on the foundations of many years of learning and experience, inviting you to share what we have learnt and continue to learn along the path of this truly unique vocation.

 

Please visit our Doula Training website at www.doulatraining.co.uk for all information including course content, dates, fees and locations.

This innovative training week takes place in various venues around the world and the course content is shared through a broad spectrum of teaching mediums.

We initially explore our own relationship with birth, in order to debrief any personal experiences, to create a clear internal space  from which we can begin to explore how best to support women and their families throughout the childbearing year, from an empowered, non-judgemental place. Exploring our role as Doula throughout the Childbearing Year remains the central focus, as we reflect on our own inherent attitudes towards pregnancy, birth and parenting. Experience informs intention, so we know how important it is to ensure that our own experiences and subsequent feelings around these stories, don't overtake our ability to be fully present and not in judgement of those stories which, as Doulas, we will hold. 

We discuss a myriad of potential birth experiences, from home or birthing centre to hospital, from water and natural birth, to the more medicalised procedures which can arise during birth, and their potential outcomes.

We spend time sharing tips and experiences of working with Pregnant and Postnatal women and their families, looking at some of the issues and topics which can be raised during this precious time.

 

 “Inspiring, highly informative, well rounded, deep, empowering, enjoyable and kind!” Helen 

To ‘train’ in such a field is a new idea. Being a Doula is a grassroots community service, which predates most every other 'job' you could think of. Being a Doula is an ancient tradition and we would have supported and encouraged women in childbirth and as new mothers, as part of what it meant to live in close proximity to one another.
