Pleased to announce that I just completed my ninth training since starting the training program with A Sacred Journey Doula Training in May 2013.  It was such a joy to help train seven women in their journeys as doulas. I have made several additions and changes over the years, but the changes for 2016 have been the biggest by far!  Some of the new additions included:

  • Basic training with practice activity on electronic fetal monitoring
  • Cesarean rates comparison activity
  • Essential Oils for doulas
  • Bishop score activity
  • Labor scenarios activity

  Here is a few pictures of the fun we had at the latest training:   DT 1 DT 2 DT 3 Above left:  Breastfeeding education with Celina Sisk.  Above center:  Doula Q&A with established doula Caitlin Fisher.  Above right:  Group activities. DT 4 DT 5 Learning proper technique for hip squeezes and counter pressure. DT 6 DT 7 Learning and discussing multiple ways to utilize the rebozo in labor. DT 8 I am the laboring woman showing the ladies how to use the doula as a pushing aid. DT 9 DT 10 DT 11 Lastly, here are a few great shots from the ladies acting out labor scenarios I wrote out for them.  It was awesome practice for these new doulas to jump into practice birth situations and have to practice what they learned.  We all had a lot of good laughs! Interested in joining the fun and pursuing your call into doula work? Join us on our next training.  The dates are May 20th, 27th and June 4th, 2016! Get in touch with me for more information and to get your spot now before the training fills up. #sacredjourneydoula #sacredjourneymidwifery #houston #midwifelife
