Finding a Birth Beautifully Training
In-person, between Syracuse and Albany. Birth Beautifully offers a few ways to complete our birth doula training. If you are “local” to central NY area, we have an in-person training scheduled for October 15-16, 2022 in Cooperstown, NY. This is a great option because gathering with other professionals and learning hands-on comfort measures and support techniques is wonderful if you’re just starting your doula journey. These two full days will feature extensive education and information on:
- The role of the doula
- Birth knowledge
- Various types of support
- Common medical procedures during pregnancy and labor
- Challenging childbirth scenarios
- Business basics
You’re also likely to start both professional relationships and friendships with other attendees. You might even connect with someone and decide to create an agency or partnership.
In-person, in your city. If you aren’t able to attend our upcoming in-person training, consider having us come to you! Birth Beautifully doula trainers are ready to travel and hold a training in your city! This is for the same two-day in-person training as described above, in a location near you. This arrangement requires a confirmed minimum number of attendees. If you are interested in helping to coordinate bringing our training to your city, contact us.

Birth Beautifully started after its founder realized that so much was lacking in the birth world. She envisioned not only competent, compassionate care for women and their families, but also comprehensive trainings that would set the foundation for doulas to build their careers. Birth Beautifully believes you should be confident after your training and ready to support clients and to make your business succeed.
