This training will be very hands-on and incredibly comprehensive and what you don’t learn in this training will be covered in follow up webinars through the Academy you will become a member of.

The training will include demonstrations of complementary therapies and then practising massage, acupressure, meditation, hypnosis and positioning techniques on each other, but also on a pregnant woman that will attend the specific training day for practice of those techniques.

This is where your learning really starts – with hands on demonstrations plus our experience and knowledge in ensuring that you are performing these skill sets safely and effectively not only for your client, but for yourself as well.

This will be an exciting, thriving and heart-centred career for the right women, while also providing an ongoing learning hub and village of support for those who train at the Doula Training Academy.

About Us

& Our Mission

The Doula Training Academy was established to educate, inform, encourage, research and to provide an ongoing support network for Doulas across Australia.

At the Doula Training Academy, we embrace the collective knowledge gained from training, tradition and experience and this is passed down from generation to generation – like a legend or folklores. We recognise that it is not just about being present at a woman’s birth – there is so much more to being a doula. Being a doula is about “listening” to a mother, so you hear and acknowledge her hopes, fears and doubts. It is about “open discussion” with her to develop a birth plan that encourages autonomy, alternatives and choices.

It is about building “rapport” with her and her partner so that they trust you. It is about “eliminating your ego” as you can never think you know it all – every day you must strive to learn something new or different, and that will always highlight you as a quality service that provides a woman “satisfaction that exceeds her expectations.”
