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, or already have a newborn at home 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 Workshops are 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 7 hours of childbirth education, 5-7 hours of lactation support education, and 4 hours of trauma-informed care, as well as racial equity and inequity, labor support history, and intersectionality and inclusivity training, as we believe these are skills all birth and postpartum doulas should know. Further mentoring and valuable hands-on birth experience with a supervising doula are also available.
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 our location in the Central Valley in particular, as well as across the globe, thereby leading to greater equity and better birth and postpartum outcomes for all. The complete workshop is an approved doula training for midwifery students at the Midwives College of Utah.
