The Doula school
The training is based on a course of personal growth that helps the students to structure their own personal and professional identity as a doula. A doula is the one who “serves a woman” or “the one who mothers the mother”; the value of maternal care is more and more neglected and under estimated. One of the main goals of the school is to give to the doulas’ role a professional value, but also an existential and spiritual dimension. The training is divided in three essential stages: to be or know the own identity as a doula, then know how to be or being able to transmit the knowledge and finally know how to do, or the knowledge about pregnancy, birth and post partum including the techniques and tools which can be used as a doula. The training is open to all interested women: to the professional women who already work in the pregnancy assistance, obstetricians, nurses, educators; to the mothers who wish to enhance their proper “maternal competences”, young and older women who wish to go on an innovative, existential and professional journey.
