The aims of the Doula UK Introductory Workshop are to:
provide insight into the world/work of the doula/birth companion and the postnatal doula, to explore some of the personal qualities needed to be doula, to increase awareness of some of the relationships involved, to provide a safe space to begin the debriefing of personal birth and postnatal experiences, and to help signpost routes for further training and personal development.
At the end of the workshop you may also find that being a doula wouldn’t work out for you, or at least not at the moment.
PLEASE NOTE: this workshop covers all that our original intro course does but with a facilitator from the LGBTQIA+ community. Offering a safe space to find out what the birth world is like for a LGBTQIA+ birth worker.
