Doula

Mentoring

This is a place I am very happy to welcome you to. A Mentoring platform promoting safety, reflection and growth for you as a new doula who has just completed your preparation course or perhaps you have been working as a doula for a while and you now are finding you would like a place of supported reflection - whichever it might be, your in a good place for starting.

What does the Every Birth Matters Doula Mentoring offer?

The model in which the mentoring is delivered is using a reflective model and approach. This will enable you to debrief and reflect on your experiences directly from working with a client, as well as the overall reflections of working as a doula. 

All our mentoring is offered online as this will allow this mentoring to be available to all across the UK and to delegates outside of the UK.
