Doulas help make birth better! They nurture, support and offer expert guidance for families during their pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum time. There is incredible evidence that shows how birth doulas improve outcomes!
Benefits of a Doula.....From the beginning of time, women have been cared for and nurtured as they become mothers. Family, friends and neighbors from the community would rally around the new family to help guide them through their tender early weeks and months with a new baby.
According to a 2013 Cochrane Database Systematic Review, “continuous support during labor has clinically meaningful benefits for women and infants and no known harm. All women should have support throughout labor and birth.Today, we’ve expanded and professionalized these roles! DONA International is the world’s leader in training, certifying and supporting birth and postpartum doulas everywhere.
The Birth Doula Workshop at The Birthing Inn meets all the workshop requirements needed to pursue certification through Doulas of North America (DONA). You can find more information about DONA and certification requirements here: Doulas of North America Website (DONA).
The next doula workshop is being held the weekend of November 2-4. Our next workshop won't be until Spring of 2019! Space is limited sign up now!
