The Birth Boot Camp Postpartum Doula training program is growing, and we couldn’t be more excited. When there are so many options available for postpartum doula certification, why should YOU certify with Birth Boot Camp? Here are some of our favorite reasons why.
1. Set Your Own Schedule & Be Your Own Boss
As a postpartum doula you are not on-call like you are as a birth doula. You are in control of your schedule and can decide when you’d like to work and when you’d like some time off. Many postpartum doulas choose to work daytime shifts while some prefer graveyard nighttime shifts. It’s totally up to you. You can also decide how many clients you’d like to take and just overall how much you’d like to work.
2. One-Stop Shop
Simplify! This one word helps describe how we have designed our doula training requirements. We don’t want you to have to search or spend more money to complete your training.
Your training includes,
No extra expense! We think it’s so important we include it for you. No extra workshops, it’s all included in one package.
3. Coursework Finished Before Workshop
You will finish your book reading, childbirth classes, and other coursework BEFORE the workshop. We want your training to be a time where you can focus on connection, relationships, and learning. There are two other reasons we want all of our trainees to have their coursework done before training.
- We are all on the same page and have the same knowledge base so there isn’t anybody in the back wondering what is going on.
- We want you to be able to start taking real, paying clients immediately. You’re not certifying just for fun (though it is fun) but because you want to rock this business.
4. Receive Everything You Need to Get Started
As a Birth Boot Camp Postpartum Doula you’ll receive our postpartum doula handbook, along with a sample contract, client intake forms, etc. You’ll receive everything you need to get started immediately after training. You’ll leave training with the skills and confidence needed to be confident during interviews and getting hired, know what to discuss at your home visit with your client, and how to support them based off of their individual needs. Here’s more of what you’ll learn at training.
5. Fourth Trimester Guidebook
We created an amazing booklet for our postpartum doulas to give to their clients. Why?
- No staplers.
- No copy machines.
- No handouts.
- No scrambling to pull together documents before your interviews.
- It’s professional, neat, and clean.
It’s a 28-page booklet for your client that has all the information you would like to impart to them. It is neatly bound, beautiful, bright, and colorful.
It helps couples have a reference when they have questions, so they feel safer and supported.
And as an added bonus – you never run out of ink!
6. Mentorship and Business Training
What does it mean to have a mentor? It means you have someone who can not only answer your questions, but who welcomes them. Mentorship is imperative for any business owner but even more needed for those doing the sometimes hard and emotional work of a postpartum doula.
We provide this in a few ways:
- Your Birth Boot Camp Trainer is accessible to you when you need her.
- Calls with Birth Boot Camp Headquarters are available.
- We facilitate peer support from other birth professionals – but we’ll get to that later!
When you are a Birth Boot Camp Postpartum Doula, you won’t be left alone. There is a huge team of people to support you.
7. Professionally Designed & Printed Materials
All of our materials are professionally designed and printed, which means you have access to amazing marketing and promotional materials, as well as beautiful stock photography, to use to help you build your business! Brochures, business cards, stickers, postcards, thank you notes, and branded products like pens, tumblers, lip balm and more, help you get your name out there and establish your business in a professional-looking way.
8. Support through Birth Boot Camp

- Our advisory board with vast knowledge in different subjects who can be approached with questions.
