Why Doula Certification?

Women Helping at BirthThe more we learn about the full range of needs that exist before and during childbirth which are not necessarily medical in nature, the more we see that these needs are not being addressed. Sensitive, caring, knowledgeable women are needed to fill this gap in providing non-medical support to women before, during, and after childbirth.

I started the journey of being a doula… a year ago. I was unable to afford the different trainings. I am happy to finally found a program that fits my needs.

Some women decide to become doulas after they experience birth for the very first time themselves. Other women become interested in doula training when they see their own daughters preparing for childbirth. Whatever the motivation, universally there seems to be a sense of calling that they are being invited to assist in something greater than themselves.

New Beginnings Doula Training takes a pragmatic (or practical) approach to the issues that face women during pregnancy and at childbirth. Our program is heavily research based and we teach our students how to use current research to better create informed decisions, always remembering that a doula is non-medical labor support.
