A fertility doula (CFD) is a specific doula that supports individuals and families on their path to becoming pregnant, regardless of what that looks like. Whether going the fertility clinic route, at-home monitoring and insemination, or a mixture of the two – a fertility doula provides you with support best suited to your needs and wants.

Did you know that even under optimal conditions, the chances of getting pregnant are around 20% per month? This makes it difficult for many to get pregnant naturally. In our Fertility Doula Certification, you’ll learn about fertility and multiple ways to help a client get pregnant naturally, fertility treatments, allowing members of the LGBT+ community, and more. We will also cover pregnancy avoidance.

Purchase of this course entitles the student to access our private student and alums group, which offers early access to systems in development, free attendance to all live webinars, and discount codes on existing products. 

The Fertility Doula course contains six modules of training and assignments and takes an average of 8 weeks to complete.

This course counts for 3 CEUs toward the TMI Doula Certification. 

The fertility doula  Course provides the Certified Fertility Doula (CFD) credential upon completion and payment in full. We strongly recommend a Labor & Birth doula certification before completing this course.

Our program is unique. Instead of just a weekend-long workshop, we break it into six online modules, including recorded lectures, videos, reading, and assignments. The goal is that our doulas will be well educated and ready to competently assist mothers to have fulfilling births without the extensive after-the-workshop requirements of other programs.

We’re here to help guide you on your journey toward certification. We have a mission to ensure every woman has a well-trained Doula at birth. Our vision of the role of a doula is a partner for the birthing person. She is there to advocate for the birthing person and, preferably, work with the care team to help keep the birth within normal limits. When a new parent has used the services of a doula, she has a better chance to feel more in control of her birth.

This certification program will prepare you to provide evidence-based support for expectant families in pregnancy, birth, and the immediate postpartum period. We will cover what a doula is, the development of the embryo and fetus, comfort measures you can assist clients with as their pregnancy support, how to support your client in pregnancy, labor, immediately postpartum, support optimal nutrition, breastfeeding, and running your birth business. This Course contains 6 Modules and will take 1-10 weeks to complete depending on the time commitment of the individual student.

You will receive a frameable Certificate with a unique serial number upon completing this Course.

This Course is Valid and Recognized in all US States and Canadian Provinces.
