Our aim is to have around a 12-week format for leadership training. In the past, it was part of our doula courses (and still is in a way); but we want to make it less bulky and time consuming. We want leaders to be able to participate in a short time training that way you can get out into your community and start supporting mothers. During the training you can start supporting mothers during the second month (so as little as 4 weeks into the course). We give you basics on how to get your support group started and more.
We are also working on a leadership manual to help you out in future. All manuals will be online/pdf format. If you want printed copy, we will be happy to add that in at an extra $25 cost to you.
Cost of training will also be determined soon. Please be aware that our time goes into loving putting this together; so no training is free unless you have special circumstances. Then, we will ask if you can donate something -- towards the training cost. Training is also part of our Catholic Doula Program course at www.catholicdoula.com
