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 throughout the UK, all through the year.   Forthcoming training and booking details are listed under Courses and Events.  If you would like to be kept up to date with details of future training we can send you our Newsletter so please complete the contact form with your name and email address and we will add you to the subscription list.
