Doula Training June 25-26th
Presented by Doulas of Springfield, Illinois.
This training weekend is designed for people who want to start on the path to become professional doulas (charging for their services) or to enhance their skill at supporting loved ones during their labor and birth experience. Our goal is to strengthen the skills, knowledge and professional relationships of doulas practicing in the Central Illinois area.
The workshops are intended to be taken together, but you may choose to attend one or both depending on your training needs. We will be covering a wide range of topics over the course of the weekend.
Madriella Doula Certification Training Workshop

The Art of Doula Service Workshop

This workshop covers the deeper heart of doula service and is designed to address both the personal and professional concerns of a newly practicing doula. We are including two 1-hour post-training conference calls to be used within 1 year of the workshop, because we strongly believe that new doulas need the mentoring support of experienced doulas. $150

Registration is open through June 17, 2016. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a registration form and more information. A $50 registration deposit is required.
