The Birthing Inn is a beautiful free standing birth center. Our unique doula training workshop will include a tour of the birth center…unless we have babies being born. There is nothing more exciting than learning about the role of a doula with a baby being born in the next room with all the joy, noise, and love that that encompasses. Our unique approach to doula training includes a variety of instructors; working midwives to childbirth educators, doulas, medical assistants, registered nurses, and even a father – for a look at things from a father’s point of view. This is a hands- on training with all the richness and emotions of labor. We will basically lead you through labor from start to finish, with practical, time proven, suggestions and tips.
Your birth doula training will take place in the birth center’s cozy living room, with attached kitchen. Snacks, coffee, tea, and water are available all day. Lunch on Saturday and Sunday will be on your own. You will find many restaurants nearby to satisfy any dietary needs. Unfamiliar with the area? Just ask one of your instructors for a recommendation and directions.
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).
