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 our 5-hr Lactation Support and 4-hr Trauma-informed Care classes and many of the advanced skills offered in our single subject workshops, as we believe these are skills all birth doulas should know. These carry 11 Continuing Education Credits from DONA International. 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.
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. The complete workshop is an approved doula training for midwifery students at the Midwives College of Utah.
