A conscious birthing workshop to learn about supporting women naturally through pregnancy, birth, and pospartum integrating the science and spirit of the midwifery model of care, pre- and perinatal psychology, and traditional healing arts.
This workshop is open to everyone regardless of prior birth experience. Our students range from health-care professionals, massage therapists, college students, those seeking excellent training and certification to become professional doulas, and those who seek to gain personal knowledge for helping a friend or family member through labor, or to learn about conscious birthing to prepare to become a conscious parent.
Join us for an immersion into the science and spirit of labor support and become a Birth Arts Doula. Learn how to provide support for women and babies through pregnancy, labor, birth, and immediate postpartum. The training includes a weekend workshop, an extensive workbook, and on-going mentoring through distance work to complete certification as a Certified Birth Arts Doula.
Birth Arts International offers a complete birth doula training integrating evidence-based maternity care research with traditional women's wisdom and intuition. The workshop includes hands-on experiential practice in bodywork, rebozo, labor support techniques, and non-pharmacological methods of pain relief. Learn the art and science of labor support for optimal birthing in home, birth center, and hospital environments.
