Event Description

Do you have a calling to work with women and their families during their childbearing year, informing, comforting, and supporting them as they grow, birth, and breastfeed their babies?  Are you looking for more out of your doula training experience, one that will nourish you as you learn how to do the immensely rewarding but often challenging job of a birth doula?   MotherWit Doula Care provides one of the most comprehensive birth doula trainings in North America.  We believe there is so much involved in doula work that a one weekend workshop alone will not prepare the novice doula adequately. Not only will you learn about birth and how to support it, but how to promote healing in your own authentic loving way of our challenged Western birth culture through service to families.  Many women finish their doula trainings feeling unprepared for dealing with birth in a hospital setting.  There is little follow up support and they feel overwhelmed in trying to deal with the ins and outs of a busy hospital system on their own.  We want you to feel confident as embark upon this journey. At MotherWit, we believe in the more traditional model of how women community, sharing meals, amidst the noise of babies, and with the freedom to explore our own personal growth as we resonate with different aspects of doula work.  The doula is an ancient role, and it really has not changed that much as we continue to offer non-clinical, nurturing support to the ladies in our care, building their confidence, listening, promoting bliss in motherhood. The course reflects this grassroots nature of our work. This is a very intense training, and you will be immersed in learning about birth, pushing yourself the way doulas do when supporting long labours. Even after the classroom hours, you will still be in community with other participants, continuing to share your stories and learning from each other.  After your intensive six day/3 evening (60 classroom hours) from July 24th to July 29th, held at the beautiful Windhorse Farm ( in New Germany, Nova Scotia, we recommend whenever possible you seek mentorship with an experienced doula for several births.  There is no better way to learn than to watch an experienced doula in action while you observe, take on challenges with supervision, receive critical feedback, and most importantly receive the nurturing support of a “big sister” doula.  MotherWit continues to provide support as well as encourages you to form your own community of doula sisters, which is crucial to our emotional health and your continual learning. The cost for the MotherWit Birth Doula Training Intensive is $975.  The cost of lodging with us from the evening of July 23rd until July 29th is $275, meals included.  All will be asked to share in clean up, and we will ask you to be responsible for providing ingredients for and preparing supper for the group for one evening of your stay. MotherWit will provide breakfast and lunches. Included in this cost is MotherWit’s 200 page training manual, written by Lesley Everest. As there is no licensing for doulas anywhere, as we are not medical/clinical professionals, certification is given by private organizations only, completing your training requirements means you are certified by MotherWit.  We are not a large organization, and in fact prefer not to be, as we want to have continued contact with our students.   For and information/application package, please contact us at

MotherWit also provides mentorship programs for apprentice doulas, providing a community of support for new and experienced doulas alike. MotherWit also provides doula Mentor training as well as Childbirth Educator Training.
