April 18 & 19, 2020
Private Doula Training Retreat House
Maryland Doula Training Combo
This weekend is a rare opportunity for birth doula trainings in Maryland
to get both Labor Doula and EpiDoula trainings in a very efficient, entertaining and refreshing weekend, learning how to be a doula in Maryland:
April 18, 9am-6pm:
Labor Doula Focus
April 19, 9am-6pm:
(reducing complications & cesarean rates if epidural pain relief is utilized)
(click above to learn more about each program in this doula training in NYC)
Let's be honest, you won't be doing birth support work for very long before one of your clients will choose to utilize an epidural. This may or may not be part of their plan from the beginning, but it can happen - even for the most prepared, natural minded family. Unfortunately most doulas are not equipped to handle how birth changes when this intervention is used.
You will feel confident because of this training and you will be ready to truly help create better outcomes. YOU WILL BE THE DIFFERENCE MAKER!!
No other program exists that so thoroughly teaches you how to support laboring bodies influenced by this intervention. This workshop weekend will be more valuable to you than any books, courses or any other form of doula education you can get your hands on. You will find that you use these skills even for those clients who go all-natural, because they are based on Optimal Fetal Positioning and understanding the psyche of the laboring patient.
