Read Some Success Stories

“After becoming a birth doula and childbirth educator, it just made sense to continue my education and take a postpartum doula training as well. It was such a treat to learn from Kristy Huber and her decades of knowledge and experience! Because I've had four of my own children (and having been a doula and childbirth educator for over 10 years), I went into training thinking that I would likely know a lot about what it takes to be a good postpartum doula, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn so much more than I ever thought I could. Not only was training filled with practical, hands on training, it also encouraged us to dig deeper and connect with each other on an empathetic and emotional level. The BBC Postpartum Doula training is comprehensive, thorough, enriching, and so fulfilling. You won't find a better postpartum doula training out there!”

Caryn

“I really enjoyed my postpartum doula training with Birth Boot camp. I took the training to enhance my birth doula skills and love giving the 4th trimester guide to my clients to help their postpartum journey. The trainers are fantastic and wonderful to work with. The support and resources with Birth Boot camp are so helpful, that I am now certifying as a BBC birth doula as well.”

Due to COVID-19, what should I do about the required birth observations?

Covid-19 has made it difficult for trainees to attend their required birth observations. We are being very lenient about this requirement. We still want you to reach out to those in your community to try and find births to attend. Keep in contact with your trainer and let her know how things are going with this requirement. If needed, we can grant an extension so that you can complete this after attending the training workshop. Be sure to contact us with any further questions at [email protected]
