MORE WISE: Continuing Education For Doulas

More Wise

Feed your hunger for knowledge and grow your doula skills with our MORE WISE courses.

In the Wise Woman Way of Birth Doula Training program I teach, at the end of each series almost every student says “I wish this course was longer!”.

I always jokingly respond, “Yes, but you only feel that way now that you’ve taken the class. You might not have signed up for a longer course and known it was worth the investment before taking this one!”.

Many of the topics in the MORE WISE series are touched on in our Wise Woman Way of Birth course, but here we take the time to further integrate, dig deeper and expand our knowledge and skills to become even more impactful in our work.

Doulas from all trainings and backgrounds are welcome to attend these MORE WISE continuing education class.

Discounted rates are available to Wise Woman Way of Birth doula training graduates – more information on the Wise Woman Way of Birth doula training program is available here.
