What our Online Doula students say –
“I have learnt more about the birth process and birth support than I ever have before. It gave me confidence in giving birth and also a greater understanding on how to support mothers. I am very grateful to have had this opportunity to learn from such wonderful leaders and experts in the doula and yoga space.”   
“I love the video classes and written resources. What I did find really useful were the tools such as active positions, acupressure points etc and the lists of what you can put in your bag, ideas for being useful in labour etc. I will draw on those resources again and again for ideas to help on a practical level.”
