Blossom Birth Services and Bay Area Birth Information (BABI) have joined together to offer a comprehensive 3-day birth doula training. Each doula will leave the training with a binder of pertinent information, lists of online resources, community contacts, a step-by-step guide to setting up your practice and much more.
Course topics include:
Woven throughout the training will be films, time for discussion, poems read, philosophy explored, and ideas offered and received. In the months following the training, classes for doulas will be offered (for a nominal fee) on topics such as bellycasting, placenta encapsulation, herbal remedies, henna body art, “blessingways” and other ideas you may wish to incorporate in your practice. After the training, participants will also benefit from BABI's offerings and support for Providers, including monthly "Birth Circle Meetings" and Doula Peer Review, available for free to BABI members and for a nominal fee to non-members.
