In over 25 years of working with families, I have noticed (as I am sure all of you have!) that the support we offer families in the postpartum is sadly lacking. We don't prepare families for the massive new journey they are on and we certainly don't take care of the emotional, mental and spiritual health of women! We truly are a birth centred culture and we do not understand the importance of encouraging families to have a solid postpartum care plan. I found in my postpartum doula training that there was no solid training in the emotional and mental health care for families. Neuroscience tells us that our brains change in pregnancy and after we give birth and we can use these changes to our advantage, educate our clients on them and help them benefit from the way we should be feeling in the postpartum! The neuroplasticity of the brain and the changes the brain goes through can be utilized to help make postpartum easier-with a full understanding of this and with support and guidance! Birth is not only about babies-it is about making Mums too! For years there have been gaps in the knowledge about postpartum-but with new neuroscience we can help families bond more deeply, as well as restore age old traditions and implement practical ways to support families for a much more relaxed and less anxiety ridden postpartum.
We are thrilled to be offering an online postpartum doula training program! This program will be delivered in 7 modules, is self-paced learning and will help you fill in those gaps for the families you work with. Help Mums find the joy more readily in postpartum, embrace what the postpartum physiology of the brain and body are meant to do and nurture the families you work with! I cannot tell you the difference this has made in the families I am working with after learning this information over the past three years. I am so excited to share it with you so you in turn can share it with your clients!
The course is open now for registration and will be offered at an introductory price of $375. You will receive an advanced postpartum doula training certificate upon completion and will have 20 hours of credit for continuing education.

I look forward to working with you!
