We are pleased to announce the release of a new video/webinar series as a part of our online doula training program. “The Art of Breastfeeding” is now available as a supplement to the childbirth course which is part of the full doula training curriculum. Students who have paid for the course in full, or up to six months on the monthly payment plan, will have access to all six episodes in the series.
The series was originally intended as an audiocast only, but we’ve gone to the extra trouble of creating a slideshow-style presentation to accompany the audio track. This allows students a visual reference to the spoken word.

From time to time, we generate infographics to help promote our services but also to spread information about what a doula is and can do for expectant mothers. A couple of weeks back, I posted an observation and a parallel between the process of labor and the process that is motherhood. The Facebook community appreciated the remark and it made its way into the news feeds of some 700 Facebook viewers organically. Read more ›

Brent, the business manager, chiming in again. (Maybe I should setup my own account.) We’ve just rolled out the first phase of the new course design and updates in the free course preview. The preview features introductory information as well as Unit 1 of the main doula course.

I was a ‘young mum.’ I fell pregnant at 18 and had my son at 19. Looking back now there is so much I wish I could have known back then which is what ultimately inspired me to be a doula.
I didn’t know my rights; I didn’t know I had all these options and choices surrounding my pregnancy and labour. Read more ›
Hey all, this is Brent (Rachel’s hubby and web master). Our registration process for new students is now fully automated as of this afternoon (Wedndesday, August 28th, 2013).

Once we have your correct contact information on file, you will receive the course materials according to the payment plan that you signed up for. Read more ›
