Birth Work happens here.

Established in 2001, our team of experienced mentors have combined their years of international experience in birth work to offer it to offer birth workers the opportunity to learn amongst us.  If you have a passion to creating change within your own community then you are in the right place!

Birth work is active work and DTC has created a program that guides members through an exploration of standard theoretical concepts, the ubiquitous need for client-focused support, and builds on the existing knowledge of each unique member.  This, in short, creates a training model that can evoke great change at multiple levels!

There are no “cookie cutter” birth workers here! Our program creates space for each member to explore, reflect, and grow.  Doula Canada exists in relation to each of our members’ individual professional goals and their unique community support.

Trauma-informed mentoring, a focus on individual needs, and an emphasis on collaboration.  Birth work happens here.

What Our Students Say…

  • Training with DTC to become a Birth Doula has been an amazing positive experience in my life.  I feel so blessed to have joined a sensational group of women pushing the bar to educate, encourage and empower women during the most incredible journey of their life.

  • The videos on these modules for the dual stream are SO GOOD. First of all it’s great to be able to see/hear you guys especially as a home-study person and secondly so much of the content is covering stuff I was really wondering about (e.g what is meant by emotional support, and the nuances of relationship building with primary care folks). Loving it!!
