Description

What sets this Postpartum Doula training apart?

~ A dynamic, interactive learning environment featuring group brainstorming and discussion, role play, art-based activities, and movement... we have FUN!

~ A DONA International-approved, evidence-based curriculum

~ The trainer, Jen Chandlee, has over 23 years of experience as a birth and postpartum doula, a childbirth, postpartum, and lactation educator, and mentoring small business owners & new doulas

~ You will be challenged! We cover innate bias & institutionalized racism within birth/postpartum, crossing cultures, developing compassion, social justice issues, and how to handle sticky situations

~ You will gain the necessary skills to navigate many different postpartum scenarios, some of which are life skills that can be applied beyond doula work.

~ We will create connections that can last a lifetime, while offering indivudualized support as needed

~ Each workshop is tailored to meet the primary needs of the group while covering the information you will need in order to provide the best possible support to new families of all shapes and sizes.

~ This is an inclusive training that welcomes all family structures, races/ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, religions, and sexual orientations. Postpartum Doulas are needed in all communities!

Topics covered include:

Postpartum Support Basics, The Significance of a Doula, The Business of Being a Doula, Communication Skills and Crossing Cultures, Disparities in Maternal Healthcare, The Impact of Birth on Postpartum, Educating Clients & Making Referrals, Integrating a Baby into the Family, Sleep, Babywearing and Soothing Techniques, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Discorders, Multiples, Loss and Grief, Breastfeeding, Pumping, and Bottle Feeding, the DONA Certification Process, and more!

The days will flow as follows:

** On Friday, please arrive by 7:45 AM to register and settle in!
