Louise Albrecht-Mallinger, Northwest Indiana's most experienced Birth Doula and Trainer, will lead an in-person Birth Doula Workshop over two weekends in June.

The workshop fulfills two requirements towards certification as a DONA International Certified Birth Doula: Introduction to Childbirth, and Birth Doula training. Participants may have the option of volunteering at the Crown Point Birth Center, which provides an opportunity to get expert-mentored births with Louise.

The workshop takes place in Crown Point, Indiana, over two weekends, June 17th and 18th, and June 24th and 25th, between 8:30 am and 6:30 pm Central time. There are 15 seats available, and we will maintain a wait list in case of cancellations.

The fee for the workshop is $500, payable within four days after you register. (Your registration will include directions on how to provide payment to Franciscan Crown Point, the sponsor of the workshop.)

This workshop provides in-person, hands-on training to be a Birth Doula. COVID protocols will be followed, consistent with CDC, Indiana, Lake County and Franciscan Health guidelines. Participants must agree to follow the protocols, which will be communicated two weeks before the event. Fees will be refunded if the event is cancelled due to health concerns.
