September Newsletter for Birth & Postpartum Doulas

Breastfeeding support skills

Can we build community in a virtual training? “All of my expectations were exceeded and I felt that the workshop was well worth the money, even not being able to be there in person.” Join Patty Brennan in Fall 2020 for live online doula training. DONA International Birth Doula Workshops, Postpartum Doula Workshops and Doula Business Development Workshops will each be offered twice. Choose your dates and join us! Also in this issue, a neonatalogist addresses end-of-life decision making for infants; midwife Geradine Simkins releases her new book, The Midwife Matrix; doulas push to get their services covered as an employee benefit; and more!
