Private NYC Retreat House in Bushwick, Brooklyn

This weekend is a rare opportunity for doula trainings in New York City

to get both Labor Doula and EpiDoula and Lactation trainings in a very efficient, entertaining and refreshing weekend:


May 16, 6pm-8pm:

Intro Mixer and Labor Doula Focus

May 17, 9am-6pm:

Labor Doula Focus Continued and EpiDoula Focus

May 18, 9am-6pm:

Continued EpiDoula Focus and Lactation Support & Educator Focus

(click above to learn more about each program in this doula training in NYC)

What is the EpiDoula??  It's an intensive program that teaches you how to support moms who utilize epidural pain relief, and support them in a way that reduces complications and poor outcomes for her and for baby.

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 single workshop day 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.
