Love Birth will be hosting 2 F...
Where to start! The important stuff of course, I am a mum of two; a beautiful daughter and son, and the founder of Love Birth. Here at Love Birth HQ we work as a team and my partner and amazing friend Laura Morris is also accredited by FEDANT to train Doulas. That really is as epic as it sounds! Both of us coming from a background of years supporting families and Laura herself has two beautiful boys and a daughter.
So, let’s get real, we know from our experience that women and their families want someone to support them during pregnancy, the epic birth moments and those first few months as a family.
As a hypnobirthing mama, pregnancy yoga teacher, birth coach, Doula, breastfeeding supporter and birth de-briefs to name a few I decided to take my offerings to the next level.. to train Doulas.
My beautiful partner Laura, well she has been a Doula for so many families she could write a book! Years of pregnancy yoga, birth prep workshops, practicing as a 7 Words practitioner, the only way was up and to share her sagely wisdom by training others.
So, what can I say, I never had a Doula at either of my births, I totally rocked them but I can say on reflection that it would have been so amazing to have someone to talk through my fears and intentions beforehand. To be listened to, to share and talk through my options. That someone attending the birth with me knowing how to comfort me, what to look out for, how to work with the midwives and once baby arrived to understand our needs. So much talk of empowerment these days yet so many mums feel a little lost when baby is home. This is why I train women to be Doulas and this is also why I can offer you the opportunity to join and train with us if you feel inspired.
Training women to support families has been life changing and I was lucky to have another wonderful lady who rocked her own births too and is out there now supporting families. We love working as a team, it makes us so powerful, so Laura and I got together and set up the Love Birth training school. We teach, we support, we work together. This ethos mirrors the training we provide.
So, what do we offer? what can we do for YOU?
Love Birth Doulas provide birth support all over the UK and we are growing.
Not only will you receive all of the above support but our Doulas are individual just as much as your birth experience will be. Every Doula offers a free interview where you can discuss your needs and their offerings. Choosing the right Doula for you is essential and we understand this.
Every Doula is a member of FEDANT which means they have been trained to the highest standards.
Tips for your first meeting and what to expect:
If you have a general question or want to be signposted to one of our Doulas or if you think we can help you in the selection process for that first meeting send us an email and we will be happy to help.
You feel the need to support families, you want to help them have the best birth experience possible, you want a career which you love and are passionate about. Most of all you want a legacy where people remember you because you were part of the most life changing experience of their life and you made a difference.
If you truly feel a calling to become a Doula then we are here to provide the training, the support and a flourishing community of Doulas.
So, here is the deal:
To qualify you will need to take part in our interactive workshops, submit assignments and attend a 121 with a tutor to check you are on track.
We train all over the UK, and we can certainly say we are different because we DO NOT:
Bristol Doula Training: 16/17 September and 28/29 October, 9am to 6pm. Venue, central Bristol.Spaces are limited to 10 so to book please ensure you contact us or email to receive a booking form and training details.
Wondering if you have what it takes? We want you to join us if you show passion and can demonstrate you understand the needs/requirements of each family you will work with.
I love how reflective the course has been for me, not only have I learnt so many things about myself but I have an abundance of confidence of how I will support families.
The community you are part of with this course is amazing, it truly is refreshing not to have to sign up to a franchise to get this kind of support!
Thank you so much, I have decided to change my career and put my all into being a Doula full time. Amazing course, Amazing people. Excited!
