The Postpartum Doula Workshop

Are you passionate

about new families?

Do you yearn

to do work

that truly

feeds your soul?

If so, being a 

postpartum doula

may be your calling

The postpartum doula's role is fluid. From family-to-family, day-to-day, even hour-to-hour, the role is constantly changing.

 

The doula is a teacher and a source of information and will provide reliable, evidence based information on infant feeding and care, as well as integrating a baby into the family. Offering practical support with meal preparation and household organization. the postpartum doula also has a thorough knowledge of services, products and professionals available in the community; and offers quality, reliable referrals when they are needed.


At all times the doula provides reassurance, support and the belief that these parents can and will be successful in nurturing their family. The doula's support and information extend to all family members equally in her role of nurturing the family.
