You're invited to an introductory workshop for aspiring Professional Labor Companions (also known as doulas). This workshop will be presented by a nationally certified, licensed midwife and childbirth educator, Susanrachel Condon. Susanrachel is also a licensed massage therapist and will provide in depth, comprehensive information on the entire birth experience. This workshop is designed for both beginners and experienced doulas.
We will cover the physiology of labor, birth and the postnatal period, the needs of women in labor, hands-on techniques, various approaches to support in challenging situations, professionalism, marketing and networking. Those who complete this training will be prepared to begin attending labors/births immediately. Ongoing mentorship from the instructor will be offered for those participants who wish to obtain certification. Requirements for certification completion are set forth by Niara Healing Arts and are fulfilled through independent study.
The retreat will be held at the beautiful Powell House Quaker Conference and Retreat Center located in Old Chatham, NY. Situated on 57 acres of woods, Powell House Retreat Center is home to trails, gardens, a bird sanctuary and a swimming pond. Tuition for this event includes B&B style accomodations and all meals.
