It is an honor to welcome a new child into the world, to encourage and support people through the process of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. It is also an exciting time to participate in the community as a childbirth and postpartum professional. Whether your clients are choosing hospital, birth center, or home births, Harmony Doula Mentoring can help you to have the skills you need to provide compassionate, culturally competent emotional and physical support, using evidence-based practices from both new innovations and time-honored traditions.
Our Community-Centered Doula Training Workshop is designed to build your confidence, knowledge, and skills as a doula, guiding you toward a great start to a successful career as a childbirth professional. The workshop includes most of the advanced skills offered in our single subject workshops, as we believe these are skills all doulas should know. Students who are approved by the staff midwives at the Homestead Birth Center and Welcome Home Community Birth Cener can volunteer at the center and to get valuable hands-on birth experience with a supervising doula.
Certification is through Welcome Home Community Doula Program, which has been certifying doulas in the community for over 10 years.
We are committed to training community-based doulas to serve the members of their own community. It is our mission to increase access to doula care for every member of our community and increase knowledge of the unique health disparities facing pregnant people in the Central Valley, thereby leading to greater equity and better birth outcomes for all.
