About the event

Our birth doula training offers new and experienced doulas a unique and comprehensive approach to learning to supporting families through one of the most profound events of their lives. We prepare you for the beauty and the very real challenges of being with birth. From how to navigate the  medical system, to how to work together, to how to actually run a business; our training is built on more than just passion.

You will feel capable and supported when you leave our training, knowing that you have tangible skills you can begin using right away, and knowing that you have ongoing mentorship and community as an EDT doula.

Our certification process is also different, because it’s about time someone change the way doulas are trained and certified. We give our certification candidates 18 months to complete the process from the time of their training. We are joining the growing movement of organizations who offer lifetime certification! See below to learn more about our training and certification process.

Our doula training goes beyond the mainstream. Yes, you will learn the basics, but you’ll also receive insight into the Embodiment Method of doula work that founder, Zoë Etkin, has been practicing for nearly a decade. Embodiment doula work extends beyond hip squeezes, fear/pain/tension cycles, “cascades of intervention,” and visualizations. You will learn how to connect to birth, and in turn help your clients connect to their birth, from an embodied perspective.

Together we will traverse the often-ignored inner landscape of birth, the sexuality of birth, the human animality of birth, and the profound changes in identity that pregnant families experience as they pass through proverbial threshold. You’ll learn how to meet clients where they are on this journey, and be able to artfully support their growth and change.

In light of COVID-19, our certification process has also changed so that our doulas are able to attend hospital births right out of training with a temporary certification paper. Once the certification process is complete, you will receive your lifetime certification!
