Our Distance Course is a combination of Zoom sessions, online learning, plus a one-to-one mentoring session – a perfect option if you are wanting to train as a doula but are self-isolating, living in a locked-down city/country or live far from any of our in-person courses.

  • Opportunities for pair and smaller group work in breakout rooms
  • Access to an online learning platform with modules prepared by trusted and respected specialists to watch in your own time
