Becoming a doula
“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” -Dr. John Kennel
Are you fascinated by birth? Just can’t get enough of reading about it, talking about it, watching birth vids on YouTube?
Are you passionate in your belief that birth matters?
Are you wanting to make a difference and thinking that becoming a doula might be the way for you to do it?
If the answer to these questions is yes, join me for this introductory workshop for aspiring doulas. In it we will explore:
*what’s being a doula really like?
*obstacles, choices and challenges
*understanding training options, what’s required for certification and recognition
*juicy Q & A session – all topics fair game!
We’ll also devote time focus in on you – where you are on the path, whether doulaing is right for you, how to choose a course that will suit your needs, and alternatives to doulaing if this path isn’t right for you at this time. And of course, joining the group, you’ll form connections with women on a similar path. Best of all, it’s local and in person so you can really get a feel for what doulaing in the Northeast is all about.
The workshop is faciliated by Rebecca Wright, doula and trainer with Childbirth International. Here’s what people have said about previous workshops:
I loved how Rebecca facilitated the day. She knows her stuff! She is more than happy to share…She made us all feel very welcome.
I really enjoyed the day it was beautifully presented I loved the energy in the room…listening and sharing and really hearing.
Brilliant! Rebecca has such a calming spirit about her. Full of knowledge and a joy to listen too. I could have listened to her all day. I think Rebecca has a great knowledge and the understanding. The day flowed well thanks to Rebecca and the atmosphere felt very safe and relaxed.
Excellent, informative and good at making sure everyone got to contribute to the discussions.
