They work to empower parents and family members in feeling secure in their care skills. We teach our Postpartum Doulas the most advanced support techniques and equip them with the best family skills. Becoming a Postpartum Doula online, or through distance learning means you can learn at your own pace, and work with local families.
A Postpartum Doula will not make or give medical advice, or perform any medical procedures. They do offer education and support and assists the family in finding answers and resources.
