Blooming Tree Maternity & Wellness Center Doula Apprenticeship
Do you have a desire to work as a labor or postpartum doula but don't know where to start? Blooming Tree Maternity & Wellness Center offers a doula apprenticeship program right in Central Texas!
Our doula apprenticeship program is designed for those who have either taken a training/certification program and need some real-world hands on experience, or those who don't have a desire to certify with any particular agency but want to ensure they get excellent training to be a quality doula.
The program is comprised of one full day of instruction and discussion on topics including the role of a doula in labor and postpartum, how to support your client, and doula self-care. Each attendee will receive a copy of Penny Simkin's The Birth Partner.
After you have completed the class, you will begin apprenticing with our doulas to complete the following:
1-2 training births - you will be hands on with your mentor doula's client, becoming more comfortable with the role you will take as a professional doula
1 evaluation birth - you will act as the client's primary doula and your mentor doula will observe your interactions and skills, stepping in only if needed
Once you complete your evaluation birth, your mentor doula will meet with the Blooming Tree Maternity & Wellness Center team to discuss whether you require some additional training or if you have successfully demonstrated the skills and knowledge necessary to become a Blooming Tree Maternity certified doula.
