Advanced Mindfulness Doula Training

Client support that honors mind-body connection

Are you a seasoned doula with years of experience, or just starting out?

Have you wished for more tools in supporting your clients from a mind + body perspective, not just mentally/informationally?

You've found your way here for a reason!

 

This training will not only enhance your doula practice but it has the potential to transform your life. Mindfulness is a mindset and process of self-awareness that can improve birth outcomes, increase maternal satisfaction, invite clarity and healing, and foster empowerment. Too often our clients are preparing for both in an "outcomes-based" way and defining their birth experience solely by those met ("My birth was a successful VBAC!" "I had an unmedicated water birth.") or unmet expectations ("I ended up with a c-section." "I had a failed hypnobirth.") We can continue to help our clients in their outcomes-based preferences while also teaching them how to foster a mindset of "accepting what is" without judgment, shame, self-blame, victimization, or trauma. This way of preparing for birth is both compassionate as well as transformative, allowing all birthing individuals to experience birth as a rite of passage regardless of outcomes—and not as a "pass or fail." Mindfulness is the single most powerful tool I have been able to share with my clients for improving birth outcomes and personal empowerment.

 

This advanced doula training covers:

  • How to help your clients prepare through mindset, emotions, and mind-body connection

  • The 3 Gates of Mindfulness: Body, Breath & Brain

  • Mindfulness scripts for prenatal, labor, and postpartum scenarios
