Why do Face-to-Face training?
As a Doula you will be working with pregnant women and their families during one of the most meaningful times of their lives – it is a privilege and a blessing to share this intimate time with your clients and one that requires a high level of personal awareness. Inner exploration and personal growth is an essential aspect of doula work.
The immersion training is an opportunity to participate in sacred women’s circle, an experiential learning environment that offers nurturing connection with those joining you on the path to becoming a doula, creating bonds and professional relationships that will support you as you complete the practical aspects of becoming a doula in your own location and grow your business.
You may already be working as a Pre-natal Yoga Teacher, Doula, Childbirth Educator, Midwife, Naturopath or Massage Therapist, however, NO previous pregnancy/birth experience is necessary to attend the training.
The small group face-to-face learning environment also offers additional support if you are undertaking on-line or distant learning as a Doula or Childbirth Educator. For those who have already undertaken Pre-natal Yoga or Doula Training this workshop will enhance your skills and give you fresh inspiration as a sacred birth worker.

“I highly recommend this training to anyone that is feeling called to be a Doula! This training is beautifully facilitated by Anna… through her experience as a Doula and a Childbirth Educator, she shares the wisdom one needs to receive to become a confident, supportive and beautiful Doula.” Natasha Hain, Pre-natal Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist & Doula
“The training exceeded my expectations in the holistic and spiritual approach to being a doula. As a woman without children, I found the topics around possibilities (e.g. medical interventions) very helpful information I will definitely need to know. Such a great training and exploration.”
Veronica Clarke, Artist & Doula
