During this Original Instructions School Doula Certification training you will receive invaluable knowledge about the birth process as well as an extensive skill set for working with pregnant mothers and their families from the time their child(ren) is born until at least 40 days postpartum.
Like all of our Original Instructions certification programs, our Postpartum and Lactation Doula certification training is committed to providing our students with an impeccable education while keeping the Original Instructions for humanity and ancestral wisdom as our guiding force. Our Doula Certification curriculum is structured in a dynamic way which bridges evidence-based learning by remembering the wisdom of grandmothers past.
Our online Doula Certification program consists of the same curriculum included in our in-person Doula Certification training and is distributed through 24 classroom hours, which include
- 12 instructional lessons (18 hours) of videos, text, activities, and assignments
- 4 hour-long live lessons with Original Instructions teachers and guest speakers
- 2 thirty minute-long personalized coaching sessions via phone call
- Lessons and live webinar classes with our Original Instructions teachers, as well as with guest speakers and practitioners from across the globe.
- Traditional storytelling, medicine songs, and other ceremonies relevant to birth and reproductive health
Once you have registered for this Doula certification training you will receive your welcome email through which you will be able to schedule your first live webinar lesson with our Original Instructions teachers, thereby beginning your certification process.
Your 12 instructional lessons will arrive in your inbox once a week, or as you complete them. As soon as your work from each lesson has been processed you will receive the next lesson. This approach allows students to at their own pace and complete more than one lesson per week if they wish to. Generally, our online Doula certification program is completed within 8-12 weeks. However, you have up to a year from the time you begin our correspondence course to complete all lessons and requirements necessary for you to receive your Doula certification.
In addition to completing all online lessons, webinar classes, and conference calls we also require that our Doula students complete our Module 2 Required Reading List and sign our Standards of Care and Scope of Practice Agreement before receiving their Postpartum and Lactation Doula Certification.
We do not require that our Original Instructions Doulas renew their certificates or pay annual fees in order to maintain their credentials.
