Paramana Doula Course

Dr Michel Odent and an experienced Doula

"Why is there such a demand for doulas?"
"In the time surrounding birth, women need to feel secure", explains Dr Odent. "They need the sort of protection that is provided by the presence of a mother. But for many reasons special to our time, many women cannot rely on their own mother and the father of the baby cannot also be a mother figure. That is why they need a doula."

If you are a mother or a grandmother, are you drawn to help other women as a doula? A typical doula has herself had a positive experience of giving birth and of post birth baby nurture. In reality all sorts of health professionals and mothers to be are also welcome in our course.

This three day course includes what doulas should know about pregnancy, breastfeeding and birth physiology, ideally building on the practical knowledge they already have from their experiences of giving birth. The course can also cover on demand a great variety of "hot topics".
