Postpartum Doula Training

Course Description

Mother Tree Postpartum Doula Training focuses on preparing the doula to support families after birth and helps them to integrate a newborn into the family.  This training: approximately 30 hours.

Your Plan for Success

The course will support the doula in Developing a Postpartum Plan that fosters a clients self determination as the expert of their own baby and nourishes the parents through this special transition time.

We focus on nurturing, educating, assessing and referring clients on:  
  • physiological postpartum body changes and healing;
  • mental health; 
  • grief and loss;
  • lineage healing practices;
  • developing newborn relationships;
  • understanding basic newborn needs such as hunger cues, soothing, sleep, feeding and caring for an infant;
  • sibling and partner transitions
  • and much more.
This course also touches on:
  • the professional scope of practice of a postpartum doula,
  • building a personal practice structure
  • and understanding the difference between a doula and other professions.

“It could easily be said that I’m a doula training junkie- I love learning and have an insatiable curiosity for didactic information that seems extremely available in the age of online media and connection. With that, I’ve sat through a variety of doula-related trainings and Jesse Remer’s is truly unlike any other. Her postpartum training was the most well-rounded in its delivery, exercises, and materials, and was easily the most diverse and intentional in its inclusivity and mindfulness. The most striking element of the workshop was how heart-centered it felt. I am not a doula trainer but I imagine it’s challenging to “teach” people how to trust in their ability to care. Jesse and those who lead in the workshop taught by genuine example. I felt cared for in an indescribable way and I suppose that’s what we can hope to learn as doulas. I’d recommend Jesse and her training to doulas at any place in their professional journey.”

“I began my journey with Mother Tree with the Postpartum Doula training. I cannot stress enough how beautiful my experience was. I trained with Jesse with the assistance of Jackie and I don’t think I’ve felt such dedication, compassion, and acceptance in a long time! The training was enlightening and fulfilling, it was shaped to the comfort and curiosities of me and my cohort and I would definitely recommend training with Jesse to anyone interested in Doula services. An added plus is the lovely farm and animals that are there too! <3
