We are proud to offer two in-person trainings for Birth Arts International!
All trainings are led by Kate Dewey, Certified Birth Doula Trainer for BAI
Birth Doula Skills Workshop
What are the logistics of this training?
The basic skills of the birth doula are taught over the course of two full days. We will break for lunch on both days for about an hour. Following this training, you will be enrolled in the online classroom where you will complete the certification requirements.
What will we be covering?
The in-person training goes in-depth, exploring labor and birth from the perspective of the Birth Doula. We explore the scope of the doula and how to support our clients in every stage of their transition to parenthood. Students will learn about pregnancy, the stages and phases of labor, the postpartum period and how we might fit into the picture for each of those times. There is also an extensive discussion about how to set up a successful doula practice. Birth Arts strives to "doula the doula" and this training is the first step. Individuality is vital in the world of birth support.
Will I leave this training certified?
No, but you will leave equipped to attend your first few births as a doula though, and we encourage you to dive in! Following your training, the online classroom is where you will go to complete the requirements. We do knock out a few of the requirements in class, and you will get documentation of that in your training from your trainer.
