Students completing the Certificate in Doula Support Services through Geelong and Surfcoast Doula services and Diversitat training are offering free birth and or post natal support to mothers in the greater Geelong area.

Our Student doulas are committed to the highest standards of training and work closely with an experienced mentor doula throughout their trainee period. Students will have completed theoretical components of the course and proven their knowledge of pregnancy and childbirth through completion of assessments.

Your student doula will be able to support your through a process of developing your birth plan and assisting you throughout your labour using natural and complimentary therapies learned during their course.

We also have students who are available as Post Natal Doula students. Post Natal Doulas assist you after the birth of your baby in your home with practical assistance caring for your baby while you rest, shower or care for other children, assist with daily household chores or meal preparation, assist with laundry or provide you with referrals to local groups or organisations that may improve your lifestyle. 6 hours assistance in total over a maximum of 3 days is available at no charge to you.

You will also have the opportunity to speak with your doulas mentor should you wish to at any time.

Many of our student doulas are mothers themselves who understand first hand your experiences and bring a wealth of experience from their own lives prior to embarking on this career.

This program comes at no cost to you in return for your written feedback following your baby's birth. This will assist your doula in developing her skills for her new career.
