In honor of National Doula Week, we’d love to hear from you about your doula love story. Share below how your doula helped you!
It’s fairly normal for parents to focus so much on pregnancy, labor and birth, that the postpartum period isn’t always considered until you’re knee-deep in diapers, sleep deprivation and a whole lot of sweet baby love. So how can you plan now to make sure you’re well supported once baby is on the outside of your beautiful belly?
Enter the postpartum doula. What does she do? Is it worth hiring one?
We asked Brook Holmberg, a birth & postpartum doula, Blooma prenatal yoga teacher, and one of the beautiful trainees pictured above, for her top five reasons to hire a postpartum doula. Mamas, if you used a postpartum doula, tell us why in the comments below so others can learn from your experience! Continue reading
Do you have a passion — or even an untapped interest — for nurturing mothers? For empowering, educating and supporting them, especially during the postpartum period?
Whether you want to explore that calling for the very first time, or continue your education, Blooma is thrilled to offer a postpartum doula training with one of the world’s most inspiring and revered doula trainers.
Debra Pascali-Bonaro‘s DONA-approved postpartum doula training (Sept. 5-8) is unlike any other.
Beyond the expected, Debra’s training reflects her human rights activism with governments, NGOs and birth professionals around the world. She is president of MotherLove, Inc. one of the oldest doula training and consulting agencies in North America, and is also the producer/director of the film Orgasmic Birth and a mother of six!
Unfamiliar with Debra’s film work? You can now watch her films via digital download for $14, or through an online, 4-day rental for $2.99. Settle in with your favorite chocolate bar or a bowl of popcorn and prepare to be inspired!
We are incredibly lucky to bring Debra to the Twin Cities and absolutely cannot wait to learn from her.
