Babywearing for Doulas

I wear many hats in life. I am a doula, a placenta encapsulator, a mom, a roller derby player, and a babywearing educator. I have been teaching babywearing from the time I initially taught myself how to do it nearly a decade ago, and I am still heavily involved with the local babywearing group.

I am excited to announce a new and improved workshop that I have designed specifically with doulas in mind. Babywearing for Doulas! The workshop is 3 hours long and covers everything you will need to know to help your clients confidently and safely wear their small baby(ies). The workshop has also been approved by DONA International for 3 credit hours. That means if you’re working towards recertification, these CEUs count towards that.

Here are some things that you will learn in the workshop:

  • the benefits of babywearing
  • how to size carriers for various body types
  • appropriate carries for newborns
  • how to safely wear a premature baby
  • communication skills
  • hands on teaching practice

The first local class that I will be offering is on December 1st here in Calgary.
