Doula Training Canada Birth Doula Workshop
Douglas College is pleased to be partnering with Doula Training Canada to bring quality doula training to BC that focuses on maternity care in Canada. Doula Training Canada has been an exceptional provider of doula training and certification since 2001 with a dedicated and professional staff of experienced doulas, who are also great teachers. DTC trains doulas that understand birth in Canada and all the questions, choices and decisions that families may have and how to support families throughout their pregnancies, births and postpartum experiences. With a presence from coast to coast DTC is fostering a space for the Canadian professional doula to grow and thrive. It is an exciting time to become a Canadian Doula.
Through national mentorship, a large peer support network, and great online presence student doulas will feel supported every step of the way from workshop to certification.
The two-day Douglas College Doula Training workshop is the first step toward certification with Doula Training Canada.
This is NOT a DONA workshop and will NOT be accepted by DONA.
We are offering a uniquely Canadian workshop that leads to certification with Doula Training Canada; an organization that understands birth in Canada and prepares doulas to work in our Canadian health care system.
