MTM Training offers a birth doula workshop that is approved by ICEA for certification purposes. In our 3 day training you will learn the basics of becoming an independent birth doula. Our trainings are fun and interactive. Learn hands on skills that you can utilize with clients. You will leave our training ready to be hired as a birth doula, and the best part is that your trainer (who has been a doula for over 15 yrs) will also serve as your mentor throughout your journey as you move from novice to experienced birth doula.
This training is only one step towards certification and trainees should visit the ICEA website for full details on certification requirements and fees.
At this workshop we will go over all of the basics of becoming a birth doula. We do a lot of interactive activities, have discussions, there are lectures and videos, and you get to try your hand at providing labor support in a mock setting.....we touch on many different aspects and explore all types of learning styles. We also incorporate technology into the classroom with the use of tablets that I bring along for your use during the training. All of this provides participants the opportunity to also expand your learning and experience as we go through the three days. The topics we cover (although not in this order) include:
Introducing the Doula
Meeting Your Clients
Labor – An Overview
Labor – The Process
Comfort Measures, Coping Skills, and Pain Relief
Coping with the Unusual
