COST: $50 This class is for Birth Doulas - Your foundation is under construction and almost complete. Now to add the parents & baby… What do you bring, say and do? It’s all covered here. Interviewing skills are a must because the doula interviews the parents just as much as they interview you. You’ll learn what to put in your files, how much to charge(and why), what kind of education you need to provide, what referrals you should have handy and how to feel prepared. The energetic side of birth/postpartum is also covered in this class – how to attract the ones you need and heal yourself before you enter into a doula/parent relationship. Come prepared with questions for our discussion at the end! Minimum of 8 to hold the class.
Registration for the Finishing series classes closes 1 week prior to each class and each class has a cap on how many we can take. Sign up early! We need time to get handouts etc. in order for each class.
Limited seats available

If you are a Hearts and Hands volunteer doula from UCSD and are interested in participating in the BEC doula matching referral program, you need to go through a certifying organization training first. We recommend the DONA training with Gerri Ryan.
This class is for doulas in training, working toward their certification.
