Doula -ing is about bringing together birth knowledge and building relationships with parents and other birth workers to create a cohesive support system where parents can gain confidence during each of the four trimesters of their journey. Therefore, becoming a Doula not only requires extensive knowledge of the birth process but also of the care system the parents decide to birth within.
These two modules are designed to sit alongside / tag onto, the Antenatal Education Diploma or the Extended Antenatal and Hypnobirthing Diploma, rather than a standalone qualification. This is because you need to have the knowledge and skills contained in the Diplomas to be a fabulous Doula!
