Welcome to the MotherWit Doula Training Page!

Excellent training is the key to making you feel competent and secure as you embark upon your career as a doula.  We do not just cover basics.  We view the childbearing year from a holistic perspective, and explore this special time in a woman’s life as a potential to heal and learn about herself, learning many tools with which to facilitate this process.  MotherWit trainings also “doula” the fledgling, birth/motherhood attendant as she explores her own strengths and challenges, holding a nurturing space within which her own unique expression of this work can emerge.

Whether you are interested in training to become a birth doula, postpartum doula, are interested in apprenticeship, learning how to be a MotherWit Doula Mentor, or wish to expand your professional knowledge base with enrichment workshops on various topics on holistic perinatal care, we have something to meet your needs.

MotherWit - CORE Holistic Birth Doula Training - 4 Days-32 Class Hours

This training is for those women who want to pursue a career in supporting women holistically throughout pregnancy, birth, and the early postpartum period. It can either serve as a complete professional training for birth doulas, as a stepping stone towards a career in midwifery, nursing, or medicine, or as continuing education for those who are already working with birthing women and want to enrich their practices. Even those women who are already recently established as birth doulas will find this training beneficial.

MotherWit Doula Training provides education above and beyond standard training. Not only do we study the pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum process and ways to support it in all kinds of settings, but you will learn a myriad of tools to work holistically with your clients. You will learn, for example, how to help a woman deal with the sensations of labour, how to navigate your way though a challenging hospital system without creating conflict, how to care for yourself as you care for others, how to run your doula business, how to conduct your pre/post natal meetings, how to build community for new mothers and other doulas, and most importantly, how, in your own unique, loving, authentic way, to contribute to the healing of our western birth culture one mother, father, and baby at a time.

MotherWit - Postpartum Doula Training - 32 Class Hours

MotherWit Doula Care is pleased to present a comprehensive training in holistic postpartum doula care. 

In a culture that puts a lot of pressure on new mothers to live up to the mythical image of SuperMom, a MotherWit Postpartum Doula has the power to bring a sane, calm perspective.  We believe in nurturing the new mother so all she has to do in the precious few weeks after birth is focus on her new baby/babies and her loved ones. 

Full healing of everything a woman has gone through during the childbearing year requires some space and reflection.  By providing opportunities for rest and  proper  physical and emotional nourishment, the MotherWit Postpartum Doula creates a special space within which a woman who has just given birth and her partner can heal and come into their own power as a mother and father.  We like to call this space the BabyMoon.
