The Momdoulary Method doula and parenting preparation training and certification program is one of the most thorough in the world, and the certification one of the most flexible. While most other training and certification programs typically have 16-24 hour total class time, and rarely with support as new doulas approach their first birth experiences, Momdoulary Method doulas receive 140 hours of instruction, and have an assigned Mentor through their first 100 hours of labor support experience. They also complete conflict resolution and solution facilitation training; breastfeeding support education; parent education training; newborn care certification; lifestyle & professional organizing training, parenting preparation coaching courses; birthnotics training; as well as a number of other educational opportunities that prepare them to provide the best support possible along the Big Learning Curve of the birth year and well beyond. Once they successfully pass written and verbal exams demonstrating knowledge in doula techniques and comfor measures, the mechanics of childbirth, breastfeeding, newborn, and postpartum support, conflict resolution, the evidence based science behind current birth practices, and lifestyle coaching skills, they will move to the next phase: a stepped approach toward independent doula service, with a Mentor available to assist in guiding them through their first birth experiences, until they are ready to confidently move forward as full-fledged doulas. This process turns out knowledgeable, confident, experienced doulas, parent education coaches, and in-home educators and coaches, ready to serve and support you as you prepare for birth and parenting, or alternately adoption and parenting, as well as through the physical process of birth itself.
