Being honest, just a short time ago, I could never have imagined teaching doulas virtually.
I love facilitating DONA Doula Workshops and meeting people from different communities throughout the world. It’s the reason why I’ve been a doula trainer for over 30 years – continually learning, listening to stories and sharing in traditions. I’ve had the opportunity to learn and grow as I’ve been mentored by our elders, traditional midwives, and women and men from so many cultures and regions, people like Penny Simkin who has devoted her own life to birth work.
So when the world changed with COVID-19 it was a challenge for me to consider how to bring our stories, connection and skills to the online world.
But I jumped right in, and ran my first ever online DONA Birth doula workshop in March of 2020 with the Doulas of Austria and my dear friends, Angelika and Jaqueline.
I prepared many extra hours to find new fun ways to share doula skills and wisdom through a screen…and it was so worth it!
LIVE Q&A September 29th
Virtual DONA Birth Doula Training - December 2020
It was so much more fun than I ever could have imagined. We were all filled with connection – a doula circle full of oxytocin, love and care.
We created a doula community in the same way as we do in person – so connected to one another.
If you are skeptical about an online doula workshop like I was, I hope these insights will put your mind at ease. I invite you to set your fears aside and join me.
One day we will be able to be together again, but since the time is now to learn and share doula skills ~ virtual is a fun, safe, and inspiring option.
Right now, we need more connection, nurturing and support – a doula workshop will recharge you and connect you to others who share your passion for a better world where every MotherBaby-Family is support and cared for in childbirth and postpartum.
I am waiting for you!
