LIVE VIRTUAL BOOSTER – MARCH 2024

March 2 @ 11:00 am - March 3 @ 2:00 pm EST

$125.00
Postpartum doula hands-on skills day

HANDS-ON SKILLS

Hands-on doula skills are such an important part of the work we do. Sometimes as a new doula it may be what we feel most apprehensive about. If you’ve done your coursework all online you may feel like you’re “missing out” on something important. The truth is you’ve been helping people around you your whole life and it will all feel so ‘intuitive’ and ‘normal’ when you are at a birth or postpartum shift. But we want to give you additional skills you can use in your prenatal visits and at births and pp shifts to help you feel even MORE confident. That’s why we call it a BOOSTER because it’s meant to “boost” your existing skills.

Birth Doula Booster

Over the 3 hour booster we will cover:

  • Breathing techniques
  • Comfort measures
  • Double hip squeeze
  • Pushing techniques and positions
  • Relaxation activities
  • Mindfulness practices
  • Prenatal visit activites to introduct these concepts to clients BEFORE labour
  • Scenario reviews (time permitting)

We ask that you bring a partner to your hands-on skills session. This is important as you really need someone to practice on. This can be any person, any gender, any age (as long as they are old enough to give you feedback).

Postpartum Doula Booster

Over the 3 hour booster we will cover:

  • Infant bathing
  • Infant soothing
  • Lactation position suport
  • Babywearing at a client’s house (wrap review)
  • Postpartum scenarios and how to best support a client

Things To Have On Hand

Please feel free to bring as many of these things as you have available at home. Don’t stress too much if you’re missing a few things. You do NOT need to go out and buy them (though you may want them for your prenatal visits anyhow)

  • Rolling pin/empty wine bottle, full soda can (anything that can be used for rolling type of massage)
