About the Event
What a fun way to get your doula certification!
Fly into Honolulu and attend our next doula training on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii! You can have a little vacation, train to become a Labor Doula, EpiDoula and Postpartum Doula, as well as a Lactation Support and Educator and make friendships that last a lifetime!
This is a very special workshop series, with the unique EpiDoula program INCLUDED. You receive a certificate showing you've officially completed your EpiDoula training at the end of the day.
You’ll learn about how the breath and the voice impact the progress of labor and our group will be visited by the talented native Hawaiian Noelani Love and her ukulele. She will bring her beautiful jewelry for a lunch time trunk show and teach us how to breathe with our clients (and for self care) while leading us in simple songs in both Sanskrit and the Hawaiian language celebrating feminine energy.
You’ll learn several hula ka’o techniques to support your clients’ maternal fetal positioning which directs baby to descend into the pelvis in the optimal position for an easier, safer and faster hanau (birth). Traditional dance and swaying promote rotational movements and are great to keep any body (pregnant or not!) healthy and strong.
Doula training no ka oi !! (the best!)
Each day will open and close with mahalo ceremony (gratitude exercises in a sacred group setting) in our beautiful retreat house and at the waters edge near Shark’s Cove. Bring footwear that protects your feet as we walk on the sand and pohaku (sharp, ancient lava rocks) that surround this protected area of the coastline. Flips flops are not stable enough.
The famous Ted’s Bakery is just down the road and worth a visit while you’re on the North Shore. Their pies are amazing and their pastries will make your morning smile.
Detoxifying teas and healing oils will be shared. Your health and wholeness is part of our pursuit as you gain knowledge that will transform your lifestyle. Gentle, guided movements of stretching and warming, pelvic focused range of motion are also part of this transformative experience!
Delicious and healthy lunches will be available to nourish your body, made with fresh local ingredients and vegetarian options will be provided. Please let your host know if you have any food sensitivities. We do our best to accommodate.
All this in a location that is something like heaven on earth.
This doula training will be a relaxing, entertaining, wonderfully educational and challenging opportunity for you. You will learn how to become a doula in Hawaii, how to become a lactation consultant, how to grow a healthy, prosperous birth business and maybe even do a little sun-bathing and wading in the protected beach area where women have given birth for millenia. This is a very, very special location with deep spiritual roots and special feminine significance!
Imagine kayaking on the ocean, hiking to a secluded waterfall in Waimea (within 1 mile of the house), paddle boarding or surfing the famous bonsai pipeline, climbing volcanic mountains, or just sunning yourself from our beautiful stretch of quiet beach. There will be plenty of time in the evenings for campfires and sunset strolls. What a great story, to go back home and say you received your doula training on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.
