An Experience Like No Other
Explore the opportunity of becoming a birth doula by joining us for our Birth Doula Workshop! The Birthing Inn is a working birth center, so you may even get lucky and hear a baby or two being born!
What is a Doula?
Doulas are trained professionals who provide information as well as physical and emotional support to the mother before, during, and shortly after labor and delivery. They can also be a great resource during the postpartum period. The presence of a doula can help to ensure a better birth experience with fewer complications. Babies who have entered the world with the assistance of a doula are often healthier and take to breastfeeding more easily.
More about TBI
TBI is the premier working birth center in Western Washington. Our carefully crafted spa-like atmosphere has no equal, and our team of talented, dynamic instructors has decades of combined experience. Instructors for our Birth Doula Workshop include Registered Nurses, Licensed Midwives, Childbirth Instructors, and Certified Doulas. There is a seasoned doula panel on hand for questions and discussion, and fathers and birth partners provide insight from their perspective to aspiring doulas. You will learn from each of them how a doula enhances and enriches the birth experience for the laboring mother and her support team.
