Advanced Mindfulness Doula Training
A connected doula
is a sustainable doula
You're a seasoned doula with years of experience—
you're beginning to wonder if this work is sustainable.
You're a new doula just starting out—
you're bombarded with doubt, fear, lack of confidence, and overwhelm.
Have you wished for more tools in supporting yourself and your clients
to feel more grounded, connected, and at peace?
You've found your way here for a reason!
Mindfulness is a mindset and process of self-awareness that can improve your relationship with self and transform the way you engage with your clients. In your personal sphere, mindfulness has the potential to unlock deep wells of contentment by cultivating present-moment awareness and radical acceptance of self. With practice, you can attain peace, clarity, and joy. You can learn deep self-care on the thought level, which spills out into your emotional state and physical body. When you are fully present, self-aware, and honoring the needs of your body, you're creating longevity in your doula practice and modeling powerful skills to your clients.
In the birth space, too often our clients are preparing 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.

Deep self-care and radical self-acceptance for a more sustainable doula practice
