About the Program

We achieve our mission by:

Our program was designed to consider the level of experience of each trainer candidate. If you’ve been teaching with another organization for 15 years it doesn’t make sense to have the same conditions as someone who’s becoming a trainer for the first time. So our program is divided into 3 pathways:


Pathway 1 – Experienced trainers/mentors/program directors


This pathway is for you if you’ve been teaching as a doula trainer at a recognized doula certification organization for 10 or more years. You’ve built your own brand and your own community but you’re looking to align yourself with an organization that fits your values. You likely have a lot of your own systems in place and your own curriculum and way of doing things, but maybe you’re looking for some new possibilities. In this format financial compensation is assessed case by case. Please feel free to schedule a call with us to learn more.


Pathway 2 – Doula trainer


This pathway is for you if you’ve begun teaching as a doula or have relevant experience. You will benefit from a ‘ready made’ curriculum and are eager to learn and grow in your doula trainer career. You are an experienced doula and childbirth educator but maybe you need a little more experience in the trainer department. Financial compensation is paid at an hourly rate for trainings and we handle almost everything so you can do what you do best: teach.


Pathway 3 – New trainers


This pathway is for you if you’re an experienced doula but are new to the trainer role. This pathway will include significant instruction on how and what to teach. A full curriculum will be provided to you, including training on how to implement it. You will be supported in your process as you audit a course, co-teach, and are supported as you begin teaching on your own!
