How does our labour doula training differ?


Smaller Class Sizes
Class sizes are intentionally limited to inspire more dialogue while allowing ample "one on one" guidance as needed. The intimacy created by the group size provides more opportunity for discussion and review while fostering a nurturing sense of support within a doula circle. Builds confidence as you navigate your way into the birth community.
