"Our mission is to provide a doula training experience full of education and inspiration that meets your passion and desire to support women and their families throughout their experience of pregnancy, birth and beyond.  Professional training for working with women in a personal capacity. Continuing to support women the old fashioned way!" 

 

“A great line up of guest speakers, carefully selected study topics, mini-workshops with practitioners from the local doula and birthing community, networking opportunities, delicious food and a nurturing environment to ensure you get the very best out of this special training package."

 

Learning outcomes.......

 

Throughout the training, you will learn new skills to develop confidence that will enable you to connect with and listen to your intuition. Personal growth is guaranteed on all levels. These important skills combined with the training content will support you in promoting wellbeing and facilitating a smooth transition for the birthing mother and her partner from pregnancy to parenthood.
