Postpartum Doula Workshop with Warm Welcome 

Do you feel called to help support new mothers, babies, and families in the early weeks and months? 

While this can be a tender and joyful time, it is also a period of tremendous transition and adjustment for everyone involved. New parents are often surprised at how much their days and nights are so filled with caring for the baby, and support from beyond the family is often called for. Postpartum Doulas help ease the way, providing infant care, supporting the mother’s physical and emotional transition, offering breastfeeding tips and practical household support. 

Most Postpartum Doulas are self-employed, and enjoy the flexibility & independence of having their own small business. Hourly rates in Western Mass typically range between $20 and $35 per hour. Some postpartum doulas offer evening or overnight care. As an independent provider, you will have the freedom to incorporate your practice into your life however you wish.

Tuition $400. More info at www.BirthDoulaWorkshop.com, and in the course PDF, available on request.
