Dona International birth doula workshop

3535 Farquhar Ave., Los Alamitos, CA  Birth Doula Workshop with Intro to Childbirth Education three-day workshop  August 25, 26, 27, 2017

This workshop is being held at The OC Day spa in Los Alamitos!  It is a newly renovated spa that will be working with women during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum time.  There is a doula collective at the spa and they are welcoming new doulas to write a bio for them to look at to see if you could be one of their doulas for the collective.

Workshops are interactive, evidence-based, and a lot of fun! We provide a safe and comfortable environment in which our students will learn, bond, and form friendships throughout this rewarding experience. We will form a facebook group so the Mentoring & Learning continues!
