Welcome to Doula Canada!

We provide internationally accredited in-person and virtual programs that equip birth workers with tools to empower and support pregnant people throughout their pregnancies and labor which we believe is very needed in this world. We believe that every birth matters and are committed to co-creating that reality together.

Have you ever considered a career in
birth work and thought to yourself

“Where do I even begin?”

If you’ve been in the same career for a while, it can feel daunting to consider doing something
new. But then you see others who are starting new journeys, launching a side hustle, and finding
something they are passionate about.

Doula Training Canada is a Certified Educational Institution with a rich legacy spanning
over two decades with over 5,400 graduates worldwide. Our commitment to empowered and
informed birth resonates across borders, establishing us as a leading institution in the field.

Welcome to

Doula Training Canada!

We offer comprehensive, intersectional birthworker training that is deeply rooted in principles of inclusivity, trauma sensitivity and embodied education. 

With over two decades of experience, we’ve witnessed the profound impact Doulas can have on families. Our certifications, grounded in evidence-based practices, ensure that you’re well-prepared to provide unwavering support to birthing individuals and their families during all phases of their perinatal journey.

We firmly believe that anyone with the desire to make a positive impact can become a Doula or a childbirth educator. Through positive perinatal experiences, we’ve seen families become happier, healthier, and closer.

Join us on this fulfilling journey. We can’t wait to meet you and guide you in becoming an essential part of the world of birth workers.
