Speedy Birth for Doulas 

Very fast births can be a whirlwind for everyone involved. Learn how to be the first person in the room to be calm and grounded when a birth is unfolding with lightning-quick intensity! Precipitous birth (active labor to birth in less than 3 hours) can happen for experienced birthers, first-timers, and during VBAC. Learn to recognize the first signs of a labor that is on the fast track; how to keep the birther centered and positive through an intense labor; the signs of when you need to get going to the planned place of birth. Also covers basic skills of how to safely catch a baby and care for a newborn in the first minutes, including proper handling of the delivery of the placenta.

This is not a scenario you plan to be in as a doula, but we all know it can and does happen sometimes- this workshop will have you prepared & calm if it does. Learn skills to help families have a safe, satisfying birth experience when the baby is coming like greased lightening! Taught by Michelle L’Esperance, Certified Professional Midwife. This workshop is open to anyone who has completed a birth doula workshop. Tuition $200.
