Learn how to help women transition into motherhood by preparing their bodies, and creating a space of calm, confidence and love.

We prepare you from a results-driven standpoint, to become a holistic health coach and an in-demand postpartum doula.
POSTPARTUM & NUTRITIONAL DOULA TRAINING
A postpartum doula assists mother once her baby has been born. She educates mother on womb and cesarean healing, nursing and feeding, baby cues, baby care, and self-care. She ensures the new mother doesn’t over-exert herself and often takes on household tasks – including baby care, mother care, and healthy meal preparation – to ensure that mother heals well physically and emotionally. She is also an advocate for mom and is often one of the first people to pick up on signs of postpartum depression or Baby Blues. Our training takes advocacy a step further and incorporates plant-based nutrition and risk management from preconception through the 4th tri-mester.
