So you’ve finished your training and you’re left with that “now what” feeling. You aren’t quite ready to launch a website and you don’t know how to organize your business. You want to get your name out there right away but your confidence isn’t quite ready to start advertising. The doulaed mentoring program is here to help you bridge the gap between training and established business. As a member of the mentoring program you will be in a private Facebook group where you can ask each other questions and get feedback on business challenges you face and you will be a part of a monthly case study and birth processing group via online video chat. You will be listed on the doulaed website as an apprentice doula at a training rate that is higher than most new doulas dare to charge. You are valuable, and if you are worth being there you are worth being paid. This program will help you skip the struggling start-up of doula practices where many doulas agree to free or very low cost births out of desperation for experience. You will also have the opportunity to shadow me through an entire birth experience including 2 prenatal appointments, a comfort session, the birth, and a postpartum appointment. If you add the files option you will receive editable copies of all of the forms and contracts I use, saving you time from having to start from scratch. You will have access to me for additional mentoring via text and chat during my business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and you will be shown how to get your business working for you. I can help check your website for grammar errors, readability, function, and give suggestions on how to make it better. Choose any or all of the options below!
To qualify for the Apprentice Doula program you must have completed your doula training through an accredited organization and you must be willing to sign a contract that you will follow the scope of practice I have set as our standard of professionalism as well as a confidentiality and copyright agreement.
