Doula Training

training

Traditionally, Doulas are present at the birth of a child. They work alongside the midwife to provide emotional, spiritual comfort and practical assistance to the mother and to gently lead the newborn into the world.

Now, there is an emerging non-medical role: End of Life Doulas, individuals who help those who are dying, and their families, to feel safe and supported, as they make the transition from this life to what’s next.

Many people feel they could play a role in supporting people at the end of life. Until now there has been no established training programme in the UK. The full training course is certified by Crossfields Institute and has been awarded the Crossfields Institute Quality Mark Programme.

Courses take place in the UK, all through the year.   Forthcoming training and booking details are listed under Courses and Events. Our Courses are in high demand and therefore we are in the process of scheduling more Foundation training for late 2019/2020.   The five-day Foundation course is taken in two blocks (3 days plus 2 days) and current fees are £625 (early bird rate £575).  If the course you are interested is showing as fully booked please do complete the contact form or sign up for our Newsletter so that you can be kept up to date with details of future training.
