Doula Certification



Categories: ,


The Madre Sana Doula Certification is now part of The Midwifery Institute!
We have a mission to ensure that every woman has a well-trained Doula at her birth. Our vision of the role of a doula is a partner for the woman. She is there to advocate for the mother and to, preferably, work with the care team to help keep the birth normal. When a new mother has used the services of a doula, she has a better chance to feel more in control of her birth. An empowering birth can often mean the world to a woman that has been systematically oppressed.
This course will prepare you to help women in late pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.

  • What is a Doula
