What’s Included in our Birth Doula Courses

If you wish to enhance your skills and knowledge, we also offer a wide variety of Birth Doula courses that will help you develop and pursue your chosen career in the right direction.

The Role of the Doula. The Birth Doula Certificate Course opens with the history of the doula and explains what a doula does and does not do, the benefits a doula can provide during childbirth, and the importance of communication when working in the role.

Reflective Practice. Reflection is a process through which we look not only at what happened in a situation but also why. Studying the course, you’ll gain an understanding of why, as a doula, it is important to reflect and what can be gained from following this process. You’ll be provided with a structured framework of reflection to follow.

Diversity, Culture, Morals and Ethics. As birth professionals, doulas are likely to find themselves working with clients and colleagues who have different belief systems and lifestyles than themselves. The Birth Doula Certificate Course covers how to work effectively with people who are different from us and how to respect the beliefs of others.

Grief and Loss. One of the most challenging areas that a doula will work in is helping a family through grief and loss. The course guides you through theories on the grieving process and specific forms of loss, including miscarriage, stillbirth, illness, or infertility.

Health and Nutrition. Pregnancy and the postpartum period bring about great change to the physical and emotional wellbeing of a woman, with nutrition, in particular, having an impact on the health of the baby. The Birth Doula Certificate Course explains the principles of nutrition and physical activity, so you can support women who may lack this knowledge.

Pain and Management of Labour. The course covers pain during labour – why pain is experienced, the pain management options available and the benefits and disadvantages of each. You’ll explore the concepts of active labour management and how it differs from the expectant approach. You’ll learn the practical skills needed to aid a woman during labour and birth, including positioning, massage techniques, breathing and relaxation methods, and how to create an optimal environment for birth. 

Postpartum Work. A doula does not only offer care during the prenatal period and birth but also for the postpartum period. The course explores the services you can provide, along with giving you the information you need to understand the normal physiology and events that should occur during the early postpartum period.

If you are seeking to enhance your knowledge further, there is a selection of Pregnancy Online courses.
