Now including Advanced Business Matters (a 6 hr intensive business training to get your business off to the best possible start) and Safety and Self Care (a 3 hr training to teach you how to be as safe as you possibly can be).

MTM Training offers a birth doula training that is approved by ICEA for certification purposes.  In our 3 day training you will learn the basics of becoming an independent birth doula.  Our trainings are fun and interactive.  Learn hands on skills that you can utilize with clients.  You will leave our training ready to be hired as a birth doula, and the best part is that your trainer (who has been a doula for over 13 yrs) will also serve as your mentor throughout your journey as you move from novice to experienced birth doula.  

This training is only one step towards certification and trainees should visit the ICEA website  for full details on certification requirements and fees.  

At this workshop we will go over all of the basics of becoming a birth doula.  We do a lot of interactive activities, have discussions, there are lectures and videos, and you get to try your hand at providing labor support in a mock setting.....we touch on many different aspects and explore all types of learning styles.  We also incorporate technology into the classroom with the use of tablets that I bring along for your use during the training.  All of this provides participants the opportunity to also expand your learning and experience as we go through the three days.  The topics we cover (although not in this order) include:

  • Introducing the Doula
  • Meeting Your Clients
  • Labor – An Overview
  • Labor – The Process
  • Comfort Measures, Coping Skills, and Pain Relief
  • Family Integration
  • Coping with the Unusual


Training fee: $475 unless otherwise marked (this fee includes unlimited phone and email mentoring support from the date of registering through the completion of certification).  Registrations that occur within one month of the training will incur a $50 late registration fee unless otherwise stated.*
