What Should I Expect?

With the limited time we have during your 14 day intensive training, we do our best to cover most of the modules listed with professional speakers highly experienced in those areas. As part of the face to face training package, you will also be given access to the online training platform so you can go back and refresh what we shared, plus continue to go through each of the modules that were not discussed – this is incredible value for both face to face doula training and the online course as an added bonus.

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.
