become a Doula From Within™ birth doula
For more than 20 years, Birthing From Within has been training birth professionals to prepare parents for birth in a way that awakens their inner knowing, is unattached to specific outcomes, and helps to prevent birth trauma. Our Doula From Within™ program is an interactive nine-module online course that expands on traditional doula trainings by examining the intersection between the modern medical model of birth and the ancient maps, and by exploring your personal relationship to birth.
Not only will your clients be transformed, but you will also be transformed…and your work will contribute to transforming the narrative of birth in the modern world.
path to doula certification
The path of Birthing From Within's Doula From Within™ training will lead you to certification as a Birthing From Within birth doula. The Doula From Within training is offered as an in-person or online course. The online option is an interactive course consisting of nine online modules that focus on supporting birth as a heroic journey, using evidence-based information blended with storytelling, birth art, visualizations, ritual, and ceremony. Each module includes a live group call, readings, audio and video tutorials, and journaling. It is a program like no other, and truly prepares you to serve parents from the inside out.
The in-person option typically follows a Crossing the Threshold course, or retreat-style trainings include Crossing the Threshold. The cost of the Doula From Within online program is $697; in-person trainings may cost a bit more and may have additional lodging costs. Register for Doula From Within in conjunction with Crossing the Threshold and save $200! See our Upcoming Trainings page for package discounts.
Our certification process requires attending a minimum number of births after completing the online modules. You will receive continuing education and support during facilitated calls with your peers, where you will discuss case studies, develop your skills, and build confidence in your new role. There is a $150 certification fee.
