Become a Birth Doula with Warm Welcome

Support families in having the births they dream of

The Call

Do you dream of helping families have better births - on their own terms? Do you know deep in your bones that birth matters?

Welcome to the Work!

As a birth doula, you will apply your intuition, strength, calming presence, spirit of encouragement and practical knowledge of comfort measures to make birth smoother and easier for growing families.

Who can become a doula?

The role of the doula is a non-medical one, and can be filled by any compassionate, sensitive, willing person who has the experience and/or training to support the family. Warm Welcome has trained doulas ages 16-65+, those who are parents and those who have never birthed. After the workshop, participants begin attending births.

Ripple Effects

The effects of doula care are long-lasting, profound, and measurable. Studies show an increase in rates of vaginal birth, less need for medical interventions, less requests for pain meds, higher rates of parent satisfaction, and more.

You have 2 years from the last day of the workshop to send in your certification application.
