Certified Doula Education Program
Become a doula and experience one of the most fulfilling ways to support women and their families! Birth is a journey that unfolds spontaneously and organically. Through this journey women and their partners face important decisions and powerful emotions. The role of the doula is to be the grounded, constant voice and touch of reassurance and calm. The doula honors and preserves the family’s space and choices which allows them to be engulfed in what really matters, the transition of their beautiful baby earth side. Come ride the birthing high and join the Birth Art International doula team by taking this certification training being offered to you by the Green Stork!
