Doulas are cherished and loved forever by the families they assist.
It’s so special the way the connection of deep love and trust remains in your relationship with the family, beautiful memories are made that you’ll look back on and smile. The depth of these amazing life journeys have the capacity to move you emotionally, spiritually and create within you such an intense shift of growth, maturity, compassion, understanding and wisdom. Once you’re on this path you will be so glad you made the decision to grow and develop in this way.
Julie provides Doula Birth or Post Natal Companion Online or Face 2 Face Training to all women over 18.
You could be earning somewhere upwards from $500 or more per birth, depending on level of experience as time goes by you’ll gradually increase your price according to your services you offer. To be honest if we could do this work for free and have no financial obligations we certainly would, but also there is the aspect of respect, self-respect to charge what your worth, the care and the effort you put into being a Doula.
Are these courses tax deductible?
Yes it is for those who go on to attend births or post natal work with mothers and be paid by clients. Not everyone is concerned about this and that’s fine, however for those who are concerned it’s always wise to consult your accountant about the fine details of your own personal and business financial situation.
I am a qualified midwife but I’d love to learn all about the art and skill of being a Birth Doula and a Post Natal Doula as this is not covered in the medical training as a nurse/midwife I’ve done – can I attend too?
Most certainly yes, I totally get where you are coming from and all medical staff are warmly welcome.
Will Julie be available to keep on helping, supporting and mentoring me after the F2F course is over? Yes, most certainly, Julie provides 24 months of free ongoing mentoring support for all her Face 2 Face (not Online/Correspondence) trained Birth Doulas. The close friendship continues. You will have access to Julie via text, email, phone, skype and whichever other options suits you best.
When do I receive my Certification of Completion of the Birth Doula Course or Post Natal Doula Course? On the final day of the course your beautiful certification endorsing your new qualification will be handed to you to cherish. You’ll be delighted at your achievement and what excitement your future holds of attending Births and helping the woman and their partners have amazing empowering births for their beautiful new babies.
