Families are ready for you to support them in all the ways.  Let's do this! Choose the package that's the perfect fit for all your goals. It's a smart business move to diversify.

You're thinking big. It's the perfect time to get started.

You could support families as a birth doula. Or a postpartum doula. Or a childbirth educator. But what if you could offer all three services? You definitely can.

Here's what each of these professionals do:

Lamaze childbirth educators teach families about birth and the postpartum time in the classroom or in private sessions. This work focuses on creative and engaging ways to help parents learn the skills they need for an empowering experience.

Birth doulas support families in-person during the birth process in the hospital, in birth centers or at home. This includes physical support, emotional support, information, advocacy, and partner support.

Postpartum doulas come to the home after the baby arrives and help families settle in over the first weeks and months. Think baby snuggling, teaching, processing, nurturing, and light household chores.

Visualize yourself sharing evidence-based information with families in the classroom, whether that's a group series or a private class, and then continuing to support them by attending their birth and throughout the fourth trimester. Serving in two or three roles can multiply the ways you help new parents — and boost your income.

The package you told us you wanted.

Over the years we've had a lot of birth workers come to us for multiple trainings, and we've watched their businesses grow and thrive. Now we're offering special package pricing that will help you get started with the combination of skills and training that's right for your life and for your community.

You can register at the same time to take a birth doula workshop, a postpartum doula workshop, and our Lamaze childbirth educator seminar.

The best news for you: save $$$ when you register at our package rates.

These packages are for people who want to register for multiple trainings at the same time. To register for just one training, please see those individual pages: Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Lamaze Childbirth Educator.
