Doula-ing the Doula continuing education

Birth + Postpartum Doula Mentoring

Welcome to the village.

One of my favorite parts of doula-ing is sharing about the work and mentoring. It’s what we do for each other. Most of us have our own niche and enjoy building community as doulas. Our work can be so rewarding, but it can also be equally isolating. Sharing within our community, social media, monthly meetings and local trainings are just a few ways we can stay fresh and nurturing while continuing to give our best to our clients.

You know the expression…”a picture is worth 1,000 words.” Shadowing is worth 100,000 words! Join me at a series of three home visits (at least one of which will be an overnight visit).

You will receive on-the-job training, grow to more deeply understand the value of our work and explore the different needs of individuals and their unique infants.

To date, there is no fee.

This is an informal coffee date, my treat, to welcome you to the community and to this work, share business and parenting resources, answer questions about the role of postpartum doula and introduce you to who’s who in the community.

While it isn’t necessary for you to have ALL the resources, local and otherwise, right off the bat, it is important that you know where to go to get that information. I can also help you with identifying your client base and discovering your niche. Getting started and typical business challenges will also be addressed.

Let’s make a date!

doula client debrief

COFFEE & CLIENTS (A Doula Debrief)

An interesting quality of this work is that every client wants something different, and rarely does a client appreciate ALL of the gifts, knowledge and experience we have to offer. The hardest part of our work is often learning to join the clients where they are to meet their needs, while putting our own agenda on the back burner. So, how do you get clear and process so you can consistently be at your best?

The answer is being heard in a non-judgmental zone, sharing your raw experiences, and discharging your strong feelings, while gaining clarity and a new perspective. COFFEE & CLIENTS offers that safe space. Advice is offered only at your request, after discussing your experience without holding back. This is the key to finding the clarity that is required to let go and move on to your next family.

Please contact me to set up a private virtual or in-person meeting so you can debrief and move forward on your path. Many times an open heart combined with active listening is exactly what is needed to open the gates of receptivity and relief.

To date, this meeting is a courtesy.
