Here’s What Our Students Are Saying

“Vicki is such a pleasure to work with. She has been at the forefront of the birth professionals scene in Western Australia for many years, and has been responsible for key professional development events such as Spinning Babies coming to Perth. She is the consummate professional, and practices numerous perinatal modalities including childbirth education, pregnancy massage, hypnobirthing, placenta encapsulation and also as a birth doula. I highly recommend her to expectant couples, as I know that when they go to her they are going to an award-winning birth professional, who is trained, qualified, and experienced.”

– Kelly Evans, The Modern Doula

“I endorse and recommend Vicki Hobbs in her endeavour to establish her Doula Training Academy. Vicki is well equipped to do this, She is an experienced and compassionate Doula. From my experience over the years I have found Vicki to be viewed by the patients with whom we shared care as a loving supportive presence in their labour. She encouraged women and allowed them to find reserves of strength but did not compromise my relationship with them. I enjoyed working with her because she was always professional and never intrusive. I wish her well in this venture.”

– Dr Margo Norman – Obstetrician

“Vicki has worked with myself and my team as a Doula for some of my private patients. She has a good rapport with her patients and she works very well with other healthcare staff involved with the patient’s labour and delivery of their baby.”

– Dr. Althea MaGee – Obstetrician

“Vicki is one of the most competent and capable doulas I know. Not only is she warm and generous, she is also experienced and highly qualified. Her broad range of skills include physical support with massage and placenta encapsulation as well as emotional support with hypnobirthing and mother blessings. It is this combination of mind and body working together that really set her apart. With Vicki you can have confidence you are in the very best hands. ”

– Julia Jones, Newborn Mothers

“HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend doing Vicki’s training. She has given so much of herself to this training academy – you can see how much time and effort has gone into it. I feel as if I am completely prepared to be the best Doula I can be and I feel confident about my journey – thanks to this amazing course. I couldn’t fault it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

“Vicki loves what she does and that really shows itself in the wonderful course that she has put together. Grateful that she has decided to share all of her knowledge with us!”

– Odile Chaperon

“Vicki is a wealth of knowledge, and I consider myself lucky that I was able to learn from her. The tools, techniques, knowledge and mindset I got out of her Birth Doula training are even more than I had hoped for, and I am glad I have such a wonderful person to guide and support me on my journey ahead. Thank you for your commitment and for sharing your knowledge with us, it was amazing!”

– Kristina Fuderer

“Vicki’s love for what she does shines through in the wonderful and comprehensive Doula training that she has put together. Vicki is incredibly down-to-earth and so relatable, which makes her very approachable and asking questions is a breeze. Her knowledge is vast and her excitement infectious. The guest speakers that we had were all amazing also in their specialty topics. I feel that having various presenters also brought with it a greater accumulation of knowledge and experience, which is lacking in some courses. I highly recommend training through the Doula Training Academy as not only is the knowledge shared comprehensive, the friendships formed have been lovely and the personal growth has been amazing. Vicki is a wonderful teacher.”
