baistick2Why Birth Arts Doula Training? Birth is a journey, being a doula is like being a pathkeeper. On the road to birth the woman is taken from womanhood to motherhood. The woman is transformed through birth, her birth, her experience, this will effect her whole life. Honoring and preserving the birth experience is the role of the doula. Birth Arts International doula trainers are both trained in the Wise Woman tradition and herbalism, these are also brought into the training program. Some of our trainers are midwives, artisans, authors and experts in the field of doula education.
