Description

This is a comprehensive 3-day doula training designed for both the new doula just starting a practice and the experienced doula looking for additional support. The class offers an understanding of pregnancy and birth anatomy and focuses on the special role of the doula during this process. This is a hands-on, participatory workshop which requires some pre-reading of materials.


Your doula training is a first step towards certification. Once the requirements are met, you will be certified with Life Cycles Collective Doulas. This is a training program that aligns with national standards for certification but includes additional resources, professional support, continuing education and an optional mentoring program through the Buffalo Doula Collective. Pre-reading requirements will be sent and additional certification requirements are available by emailing buffalodoulacollective@gmail.com. You may request a phone consultation to discuss requirements and the program details or view at:
