Looking for a way to enhance your labor support skills?

Want a quick refresher for your L&D staff?

Want a doula training that’s designed specifically for nursing students?

We have you covered!

What can you expect with your training?

  • Commitment to supporting families no matter their choice (non-judgment)
  • Empathy
  • Collaboration
  • Research based information
  • Hands on skills for supporting labor
  • Practical information that can be implemented immediately

Think of us as your liaisons- we work with birth professionals and families on a daily basis and want to share all of our experience with you so families can have the best possible outcomes.

  • When possible we train IN hospital to use the tools you’re familiar with
  • Even the most experienced nurses learn from us!

I’ve been an L&D nurse for 25 years. I came into this training thinking there wasn’t a thing I could learn. I was wrong. Thank you!- Pam
