Surrogacy Support Continuing Education

Surrogacy Support For Doulas and Birth Workers

This continuing education course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to expand your business and help both surrogates and intended parents.

More and More Families are Turning to Surrogacy

Surrogacy is a legal and highly successful alternative for those who have had difficulty or need assistance creating a family of their own. Surrogacy can be a complicated path that presents its own unique challenges, with various parties seeking support from Doulas and Birth Workers.

This course is designed to equip birth support workers with the knowledge, tools, and information they need to help both Surrogates and Intended Parents on their journey to parenthood. Surrogacy Support is a 3 module online self-study continuing education course. Each module explores in detail the support Intended Parents and Surrogates need before, during, and after delivery.


This course will help you:

  • Understand the various steps and stages in a surrogacy journey
  • Learn the language and procedures relevant to the journey
  • How to support the surrogate in their relationship with the intended parents
  • What support looks like for the surrogate and intended parents

The course will encourage and empower your ability to use the skills you already have and help you translate them to best suit the needs of clients. It also allows you to offer niche services that will help you stand out in the market and truly impact the lives of Surrogates and Intended Parents.

Ideal for:

  • Birth Workers who find themselves desiring more information and knowledge to expand their expertise or to support existing clients
  • Birthworkers interested in setting themselves apart in the industry and creating a niche market (either by supporting Intended Parents or Surrogates)

The Surrogacy Support continuing education course is delivered through 3 online self-guided modules that consist of readings, videos, and online quizzes to help you lock in your knowledge.

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!


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!!


Training with Doula School to become a Birth Doula has been an amazing positive experience in my life. I feel so blessed to have joined a sensational group of women pushing the bar to educate, encourage and empower women during the most incredible journey of their life.
