Who is a WellMama Doula?

We explore the work of a doula supporting the mother and baby throughout the child-bearing year…. Join Us!
The WellMama Holistic Doula Training is a transformational journey, providing you with a strong grounding in compassionate childbirth practices. You will discover the confidence and intuitive ability to offer presence and support to a mother and her family during pregnancy, labour, birth and the “babymoon”.
We journey together through the concepts of conscious conception, peaceful pregnancy, the basic needs of a woman in labour, beautiful birth, bountiful breastfeeding and the babymoon.
We look within to rediscover the memories of our grandmothers’ birthing wisdom and the wisdom of our own hearts, as well as examining contemporary holistic practices and western medical approaches.
Compassionate Touch through Shiatsu massage is introduced as an effective tool for connection and wellbeing with mothers, babies and their families.
You will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion. To qualify as a WellMama Doula you will then need to complete six birth-related case studies.
