MotherWit Birth and Postpartum Doula Training Montreal Ottawa Canada

MotherWit Birth and Postpartum Doula Training


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 birth giver’s life as a potential to explore this transformational process and learn about themself.  A MotherWit trainee will learn many tools with which to facilitate this process.  MotherWit trainings also “doula” the fledgling, birth/family attendant as they explore their own strengths and challenges, holding a nurturing space within which their own unique expression of this work can emerge.

Whether you are interested in training to become a birth doula, postpartum doula, 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.

This 2 weekend training is for those who want to pursue a career in supporting families holistically throughout pregnancy, birth, and the earliest 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 families and want to enrich their practices. Even those who are already established as birth doulas will find this training beneficial.

MotherWit Doula Training provides education above and beyond standard training. Not only will you learn the the pregnancy, birthing, and immediate postpartum processes and ways to support them 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 birthing person cope with the sensations of labour, how to navigate your way within the hospital system, how to care for yourself as you care for others, how to conduct effective and healing pre/post natal meetings, how to build community for new parents and other doulas, and most importantly, how, in your own unique, loving, authentic way, to contribute to the improvement of the modern birth culture one mother/father/parent and baby at a time.

The course emphasizes inclusivity.  It centers the principles of “relational medicine”, which are about creating therapeutic presence through our own intentional embodiment. This is critical to supporting client autonomy according to their values and the reduction of preventable reproductive trauma.

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

In a culture that exerts significant pressure upon new mothers/parents to live up to the mythical image of “Super Mom”, a MotherWit Postpartum Doula offers a calming and integrative perspective.

We believe in nurturing the new family so their focus can mainly be upon “landing” after birth (or welcoming a new child into the family through other means), processing their changed identities, clarifying their values and needs, and discovering their new arrivals within the context of family and society.

Integrating the monumental changes that occur throughout 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 new parent and their partner/s can heal and come into their own sovereignty as a family.  We like to call this space the BabyMoon.

At MotherWit Doula Training we focus on nurturing and facilitating the development of our students, so they may confidently bring their own unique, beautiful qualities to their work with new families.
