A Bit About Me

Ann Grauer, AdvCD/AdvPCD(DONA), BDT/PDT(DONA), LCCE, FACCE, IBCLC, RLC

 

I am a lifelong learner and LOVE IT! There is so much more that I want to know. I believe that doulas need to be endlessly curious and I follow that as my own philosophy, too. 

 

I've been teaching doula workshops since 1994 and can't get enough. I have taught all over the United States and the world, including Ireland, Korea, Japan and Finland. I eagerly look forward to where the next workshop takes me.

 

I love helping doulas find the path to their dreams and I want the learning process to be collabortive.

 

As adult learners, workshop participants come with a life full of experiences that add richness for all of us.

 

 

I look forward to being a part of your journey!
