Supporting a birthing person in a homebirth setting looks and feels very different than supporting a client in a hospital or birthing center. This workshop will help you to be an effective and supportive birth doula in a homebirth setting.

Topics covered:

  • Homebirth Culture
  • Protecting sacred space
  • Working with homebirth midwives
  • Doula responsibilities
  • Transfers
  • Precipitous labor
  • Doula bag
  • Homebirth kit

For Carriage House Birth Doula students, this class counts as a continuing education class towards birth and postpartum certification.

"I took ‘Homebirth for Doulas’ from my home state of CA, and even though it was online, CHB managed to create such an inviting, inclusive and intimate environment. I felt as though I was being given these hard-earned nuggets of wisdom (practical and conceptual) that would have taken me years and years of serving families to learn! Entering and holding space in a hospital, is vastly different from doing so in someone’s living space, and I feel infinitely more prepared for the unique challenges a homebirth presents after taking this class. So glad I did it!"
