I think this is a wonderful and much needed program. I see this specialty really helping so many lives. Even as a trained midwife I learned so much! I was personally guided and mentored through this entire journey and was provided with honest and constructive feedback that I greatly appreciate.

I must say, I enrolled for the holistic program and I’ve listened to the first audio introduction and OH MY I am excited! This course is what my dreams are made of. Cannot waaaait to have these tools under my belt. Doula School is incredible. I am so grateful for you!

Johanna

The videos on these modules for the dual stream are SO GOOD. First of all it’s great to be able to see/hear you guys especially as a home-study person and secondly so much of the content is covering stuff I was really wondering about (e.g what is meant by emotional support, and the nuances of relationship building with primary care folks). Loving it!!
