Postpartum Doula Training and Certification

As a Postpartum Doula you have the unique privilege of sharing the journey a family takes when a new baby has arrived. As a Childbirth International Postpartum Doula you know that you will also have training that provides you with a strong knowledge base, an amazing network of support from other students and trainers, and the confidence to provide a family with skills to enable them to enjoy these early days.

Many families find the initial weeks after the arrival of a baby to be particularly challenging - learning how to care for a new baby, helping siblings adjust, getting some much needed rest!

Studying with Childbirth International means you will have the flexibility and convenience of being able to study from the comfort of your own home.
