Certified Christian Doula Training

September will be our next 3-day training workshop that is part of our Certified Christian Doula program. This workshop will be Friday September 10th from 8am-4pm, Saturday 11th from 8am-4pm, and Sunday 12th from 12-4pm

In this workshop you will spend three days in community with other Christian women who feel called to serve women through childbirth and will learn everything you need to know to begin your journey as a doula.

In addition to this workshop you will be required to read The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin and Christ Centered Childbirth by Kelly Townsend, attend 3 births and document the experience, write a personal statement, and take an exam before you receive your official certification.

The fee for this certification is just $400, and there are scholarships and payment plans available. We want to make sure that cost is not a barrier for anyone who is called to this ministry.

This training will be held in Delaware, Ohio at Pregnancy Resources of Delaware County located at 652 W Central Ave #30 as they have generously offered us the use of their space for this training
