Becoming a doula is a rewarding opportunity for you to emotionally and physically support new and expectant mothers before, during and after childbirth, working alongside medical professionals to be the mother’s advocate, voice and companion. Every single parent deserves this.


It is our job as a doula to be able to create processes and strategies for our clients to be able to identify what they value most in their birthing experience to be able to achieve an ideal outcome.

Throughout this course, we will be going through the way people think, why they think that way, and how we can help them change their thinking (if appropriate) or transmute experiences to play to their power. We will be learning incredible processes and tools to help your clients cope, transform, and transmute pain, trauma and a plethora of other things they may come up against in their birthing journeys.

We will learn standard information on positioning, breastfeeding, postpartum care and ceremonies, but also strategies and mindset shifts you can teach them to enable them to continue to support themselves long after your time together is finished. As much as we hate that very last meeting as a doula, you’ll have all the knowledge to teach them to continue to support themselves. And that is a powerful way to doula.

Doula work is universal. It can be applied to every area and aspect of life. We’ll show you how we can universally apply our birth skills not only to our clients but ourselves as well. Making us some of the most self-empowered people on the planet.

Who is this course suitable for?

• Those who are already in love with the birth space
• Birth photographers
• Those who wish to be an advocate for women before, during and after birth

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (
