Attend Advanced Doula Workshops via Videoconference!

 

For years, folks from out of town have asked if they could Skype in for classes.  Or, a local student had a sick child at the last minute and had to miss class.  I’ve been looking for a way for doulas to attend my classes remotely.  And  I’ve found a perfect solution via videoconference.

Videoconference allows you to see and be a part of the action!  You see us, we see you.  You hear us, we hear you (though I will ask you to mute yourself except when you are asking questions to cut down on background noise).  You can see all the slides and videos everyone else in the class sees.  So you don’t miss a thing!

NOTE:  This videoconferencing option is NOT an alternative for local folks.  Being present and in-person is always ideal, so if you don’t live too far to drive to Seattle, you need to come in person. This is also NOT an option for childcare.  You need to ‘attend’ this class just as you would in person – without distractions, present for the whole time, not multi-tasking, etc.

The following courses are available via videoconference.

  • Doula Sample Class
  • Breastfeeding Resources and Skills for Doulas
  • Business Skills for Doulas
  • Journey Through the Pelvis
  • Placenta Encapsulation
  • Powerful Prenatals
  • Rebozo  Skills for Labor and Birth* (two doulas required – see note below)
  • TENS Unit* (two doulas required – see note below)
  • Supporting Families in Grief

All videoconference attendees will be provided with:

  • Access to the online classroom via internet and downloadable app
  • Handouts (electronically)
  • Evaluation form
  • Certificate of Completion

To attend a course via videoconference, you will need:

  • an internet-connected device with built-in camera (laptop, smart phone or pad) for the duration of the course
  • high-speed internet

In advance of the workshop, you will be emailed:

  • a link to the online classroom (you will need to download the app to access the classroom, instructions are provided when you open the link)
  • handouts that you can print out

After the course, you will be emailed a Certificate of Completion.

*The TENS Unit and Rebozo Skills workshops have a significant amount of hands-on or role-play skills practice.  Therefore, it requires two doulas to take the course together, in the same physical location, so you can practice the hands-on or role-playing skills with each other. You may use one device to access the course.  Both doulas need to have registered separately and paid in advance.  The TENS Unit course requires the use of a TENS Unit during the training, so at least one TENS Unit needs to be purchased at least 5 days prior to the course to allow for shipping.
