Birth Doula Diploma
Doulas, being birth professionals, often find that they have to work with clients and co-workers who follow different beliefs and have lifestyles that are very often different from theirs. Included in the Birth Doula Diploma Course are methods that help to work efficiently with people who differ from you as well as how the beliefs followed by others are to be respected.Helping a family through a period of grief and loss is one of the challenges that a doula would have to face. Theories on the process of grieving and particular forms of loss that includes stillbirth, miscarriage, infertility or illness are covered during the duration of the course.A significant part of being a doula is working with clients during the pregnancy period. This is the period when you help clients to discern their goals, what they expect from you and identify the choices that would help them in having the birth of their choice.The physical and emotional health of a woman undergoes significant changes during the prenatal and the post delivery period, wherein nutrition, particularly has an effect on the baby’s health.
