About the Event
Have you ever felt helpless and scared, wishing you had a guide to support you emotionally and physically through a difficult transition in your life? Ever felt like your best interests were in conflict with the interests of a caregiver? Maybe you've been taken advantage of, even lied to or coerced when you're most vulnerable? These are the experiences that birthing families face every day - but it doesn't have to be this way. If you become a doula, you can help prepare your clients and support them, giving them strength and a voice in times of vulnerability and uncertainty.
Have you felt a calling to work within the birth world? Imagine a fulfilling career supporting families through pregnancy, childbirth, and then with breastfeeding their newborn! You can make such an impact on the world, and future generations! Birthing families crave this non-judgmental, nurturing support, and you bring your open heart to give it. Maybe you find yourself naturally drawn to this kind of caring for others? Now is the time to pursue those dreams and make doing this as your career, a reality! You can do something so natural, while blessing your family financially. There is no better way to fulfill your calling.
At this relaxing and fun workshop, we will focus on your success as a maternal health caregiver! We talk you through start to finish, how to find clients, secure contracts and support those families through every twist and turn to a successful journey into parenthood. You will be prepared and feel so confident and READY to get out there and make a difference. What sets us apart is our passion for birthing families everywhere AND our doula students. Your success means that our goals of positively impacting the world are being met. We need YOU to help us reach across the globe and into future generations.
During the 3 day weekend, we will participate in group activities, enjoy learning about comfort measures, current protocols, mental and emotional preparation for clients, how to support a birthing body if an epidural is used, postpartum mood disorders, breastfeeding troubleshooting, special newborn care, essential oils, massage techniques, dealing with difficult situations, drink detoxifying tea and work on deeply transformative personal introspections. Your perspective and ability to provide amazing service to your clients and prioritize self-care will come into balance. You will practice gentle movement as well as how to utilize the Hawaiian "Ha" or breathe of life in your practice. Another unique technique you'll find indispensable, is learning the baby rotation hula :) from our island loving trainer Anne, who has 6 kids, 3 of those births at home, a midwifery background and 29 years of experience as a maternal healthcare provider wearing many different hats.
Here is the lineup for each day:
Friday, 9am-6pm: Labor + Birth Doula Focus
Saturday, 9am-6pm: Birth + EpiDoula Focus (reducing complications if clients use epidurals)
Sunday, 9am-6pm: Postpartum and Lactation Support and Educator Focus
