DONA International Birth Doula Training!

Benefits of a Doula

From the beginning of time, women have been cared for and nurtured as they become mothers. Family, friends and neighbors from the community would rally around the new family to help guide them through their tender early weeks and months with a new baby.

Today, we’ve expanded and professionalized these roles! DONA International is the world’s leader in training, certifying and supporting birth and postpartum doulas everywhere.

Doulas help make birth better!

They nurture, support and offer expert guidance for families during their pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum time. There is incredible evidence that shows how birth doulas improve outcomes!

According to a 2013 Cochrane Database Systematic Review, “continuous support during labour has clinically meaningful benefits for women and infants and no known harm. All women should have support throughout labour and birth.”

Kathie Lindstrom and Jalana Grant have been teaching the Birth Doula Workshop for over 20 years. They are an incredible team of dedicated, knowledgeable and inspiring educators. The thousands of doulas they have trained have described their experiences as “life changing”; “best money I have ever spent on education”; “way more than just a doula training, so much more”; “Jalana and Kathie are brilliant and teach with such passion and love for what they do – incredible two days” ; “best classes I have ever taken – highly recommend them”; “come prepared to be blown away”.
