Elective Rotation: Birth Doula Training
Contact: Maya Zwerdling
Location: Working Woman Birth Doula Training
This was a weekend long birth doula training hosted by a lovely doula with 20 years of experience at her home in Alameda. It was great to get more experience and practical training that will be useful in supporting laboring women (eg breath work, comfort measures) and to be more familiar with the role of a doula to better work as a team at the hospital. It was also fun to get to know a diverse group of women also taking the training with a shared interest in birth.
