Learning Outcome


Learn how to provide emotional and physical support to new and expectant parents during their most vulnerable moments when you take this Birth Doula course. A doula is a professional pregnancy companion who aims to help families have a safe and positive experience during the whole labour and postpartum months. Many parents find a doula’s involvement to be crucial to their well-being, and you can be taught the disciplines needed to take on this unique role.        

As doulas provide advice and a continuous supportive role, without making medical decisions on behalf of their clients, they are much sought-after as advocates and mediators during pregnancy. You will therefore be taught all the educational requirements needed to identify and manage conditions associated with pregnancy. Along with antenatal examinations, you will also learn how to support the mental health of prospective parents, with special consideration given to empathy, comforting, and communication.  

Key Topics to Be Covered

  • Defining the roles and responsibilities of a doula
  • Performing antenatal care and recognising symptoms during pregnancy
  • Supporting a woman during the latter stages of labour
  • Screening new-borns and providing infant care 
  • Comforting and supporting families during stressful moments

Your Path to Success

By completing the training contained in the Birth Doula course, you will gain extensive knowledge about pregnancy requirements, both on a practical and emotional basis. This will give you a definitive advantage when applying for the role of a doula, midwife, or family support role in social care.

Is This Course Right for You?

This course delivers a valuable introduction to the concepts of antenatal care and emotional support work. It offers an excellent way to gain the knowledge to enrol for further training as a doula or a role associated with this health care sector. Full-time and part-time learners are equally supported, and it can take just 20 to 30 hours to gain accreditation, with study periods being entirely customisable to your needs.

Assessment Process

Assignments relating to antenatal care and emotional support will be given to all students and must be completed to pass the course successfully.
