MACFE Doula Training
MACFE offers Doula training workshops once or twice a year for those people interested in providing consistent emotional support to women during labour and birth.
The training consists of a minimum of 25 hours of classroom instruction that cover a wide range of topics including general pregnancy concerns, signs and stages of labour, comfort measures for pain management, unexpected outcomes, emotional aspects of labour, Cæsarean sections and VBAC's, birth plans, breastfeeding, and much more. Classes are offered in small groups to allow for optimal learning and participants are required to complete an extensive reading list prior to training.
* Please note: The price for our doula trainings is $500, payable in full or two instalments of $250 each, the first one due upon registration, the second due 6 weeks prior to the workshop. If you need to make other payment arrangements, please contact us. No refund within 14 days of class starting date.
MACFE does require registrants to read the following books before the Doula training starts.
