Birth is a journey. On the road to birth, the woman is taken from womanhood to motherhood. The woman is transformed through birth, her birth, her experience. Honoring and preserving the birth experience is the role of the doula. Birth Arts doula trainers are both trained in the Wise Woman tradition and herbalism, these are also brought into the the training program.
As a Doula you can have the exceptional privilege of sharing the unique journey the woman takes when she has a baby. As a Birth Arts Doula you know that you will also have a confident knowledge base, improved assurance and an incredible support network of experiences, trainer and student support. Birth Arts Doula Training explores the physical, scientific and spiritual aspects of birth and being a doula. Topics covered include: stages of labor, normal birth, cesarean birth, interventions, comfort measures, positions to help labor, birth ball, rebozo, relaxation, breastfeeding and how to get your doula business up and running.
This workshop is the first step in the certification process. Check out the BAIwebsite for more information.

"I very much enjoyed my Birth Arts doula training with Mavis. I loved the use of different mediums. By doing role playing, watching videos, reading and listening to her teach I got a full understanding of my future role as a doula. She made sure to take the time to make sure we all understood everything and really took the time to listen us and help us. I would wholeheartedly recommend Birth Arts training with Mavis. She made it fun and easy. I'm so happy and blessed to have learned from just a wise and skillful doula!" - Jennifer Knapp
