BECOME A BIRTH & POSTPARTUM DOULA
This isn’t a typical business. It is a work from the heart. We don’t make doulas. We only fired up the curiosity and passion about the universe of birth and postpartum and give you the confidence to use the tittle of a doula. We give the guidance of how to start a successful business and acquire experience. Our involvement and guidance does not end after the training.
We have a down-to-earth approach to how birth is seeing and perceived by society and the medical system while emphasizing the importance of valuing true physiological birth. We give strategies how to deal with medical system in harmonious ways that will positively impact families' experiences as well as your business. We will give you the guidance and tools to become not only a doula and but an entrepreneur. Doulas will learn how to dive unto the universe of birth and postpartum and how to start their business and be successful.
We are not here to be a name behind your business or to keep collecting periodical fees. We make it simple because the reality is that you make yourself the doula you will be. We are here to build a strong community that makes a difference in the birth world.
The HFD Training consists of one evening and a full weekend.
Our doulas will be learning basics of pregnancy, labor and postpartum, and how to support a family through that journey. Our doulas will also learn strategies to build a successful doula business.
