Why become a doula with Developing Doulas?
I've personally benefited so much from becoming a doula. It has been such an amazing journey of self discovery, it has given me such joy, and such self belief. I also felt for myself the power of a feeling supported unconditionally through one's pregnancy and birth choices, and felt the same happen to so many women, I feel it has the power to change the world we live in. So it feels right, and important, to help more women embark on their journey to become a doula.
I wrote a blog about it here and you can watch me talk about it in the video below
After co-facilitating several Developing Doulas course with Maddie I have seen for myself the positive impact such a nurturing course has on women. Beyond their abilities to support women through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period, attending the course positively impact them in more ways that can be explained, but in particular has incredible effects on one's self esteem and self belief.
After co-facilitating 3 courses with Maddie, I was approved as a Developing Doulas course leader by a member of the doula UK leadership board in February. I facilitated my first solo course in May, and received excellent feedback (scroll down to read it).
My next course will be in October in North East London (Woodford Green).
I can't wait!

After the course you also gain access to the secret Developing Doulas Facebook group, a community of like-minded women, and a brilliant space to share knowledge and learn from each other.
