Distance Learning (Online) Workshops

Becoming a childbirth educator and doula can be two of the most rewarding professions that you can add to your birth work experiences.  I have 18+ years’ experience in both roles, having supported well over 700 families as a doula, childbirth educator, lactation educator/counselor and massage therapist.  In addition to supporting pregnant, laboring, and breastfeeding families, I have also mentored doulas and childbirth educators new to their professions.

I believe in fostering a positive, inclusive environment for all families and students who come to me for education and assistance.  I look forward to supporting you on your educational journey.

Currently, I am offering an online Childbirth Educator Program.  My online Doula Training Program will be available by the end of 2019. Those who complete the Childbirth Educator Program will have the option to add the Doula Training Program at a special rate.

For those who are unable to attend a days’-long workshop, this online Childbirth Education Program is for you.

The course is 24 weeks long, allowing you time to process our weekly activities and assignments.  The only deadline you have is to attend the Live Sessions.  All other assignments need to be completed by the end of the course; however, it is in your best interest to follow the weekly course outline.

The Mum’s the Word Childbirth Educator Online Program follows a rigorous curriculum.  Some weeks you will have minimal reading and assignments, and in other weeks, you will find yourself to be quite busy.  You can always submit assignments ahead of time.

You will learn content through:

    • Discussion posts that allow you to engage with other students registered in the course;

    • Videos that you will watch and then discuss in either the Discussion Posts or Assignments, or you must answer questions after watching the videos;

    • Assignments that you will submit;

    • Live sessions (instructor-led learning) that you must attend.

This course is not graded, but feedback will be provided for all assignments.  I will be available for questions throughout the course by email, phone calls and texts.

Once you are registered for our Program, you will receive a Welcome Letter within a day or two with information about how you will be added to the Program.

I look forward to working with you!
