I have to tell you the content in this course is amazing!!!

My time to devote to the training is pretty limited right now so I was trying to just push through it but it’s so valuable that I’m taking the time to stop and really work through the exercises and questions.

When you choose to become a Dual Stream student with Doula Canada you enter a unique certification stream specifically designed to allow for our students to complete our program as a Labour Doula AND a Postpartum Doula.

WHY do many of our members choose this option?

  • Comprehensive certification requirements without repetitive content
  • A cost and time saving process (save approximately $450 saved)
  • Thorough and experienced mentorship via phone or email anytime
  • A full-bodied approach to building your client list in both streams
  • Online access to instructors and students coast-to-coast

  • A one-time membership fee (no bi-annual renewal costs!)

There are 12 core modules in total for the Dual Stream program.

Students can begin at any time and work at their own pace.  Assignments are reviewed by our team as you progress and we offer feedback and support through your certification journey!
