Thu Fri Sat Sun 12/8/2011 - 12/11/2011From: 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Room: Mother Tree Classroom
Course Description: Start your journey with the core basics of becoming a birth doula– a knowledgeable, experienced companion who is trained to provide emotional and physical support, encouragement and wisdom for pregnant women and their families. Throughout history, women have supported other women during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. Learn everything from emotional and physical comfort measures, partner support, how to support a woman through challenging birth experiences and so much more. This course is DONA International approved and qualifies as the first step towards doula certification. For those who wish to move towards DONA certification, a one day Doula Childbirth Introduction class is offered in conjunction with this course that will meet the DONA requirement for Childbirth Education. The Childbirth Introduction is Thursday.
FEE: $550 includes Childbirth For Doulas Prerequesite; $450 if you've met the prereq requirement prior to class. Lunch and refreshments are included. Dietary restrictions accommodated.
