The Complete 6-in-1 Death Doula Training
Train for a New Career in Under a Year
We’ve temporarily suspended all training other than our Pandemic Training Options found at our Momdoulary and Mourning Doula at Momdoulary classroom on Teachable. You can access it here.
This is the most unique training & certification program of its kind. The Momdoulary Method Online Complete 6-in-1 Death Doula Certification prepares you for 6 competency areas, and the training is robust, preparing you to both help your clients and tackle the business and marketing realities necessary to make a successful go at this career.
The program is built around a unique coaching model that trains you to facilitate a better informed, more conscious and supported engagement with death and funeral, helping your clients discover the best-fit solutions and supports possible. The basic part of the training is 20 weeks long, but it also includes a complementary 6-week self-directed Business Super-Start Class, and in the Special Edition offering below, many more supports, too.
Preparing you to work within six competencies allows you to maximize both your serviceability and your potential revenue, so that you can earn a reasonable wage while serving people in a way that continually gives back.
You will be working as a facilitator of a more conscious and informed engagement with death, through the following Six Competency Areas:
Work as a Mourning Doula– providing physical, emotional, informational, administrative and concierge-style support to families in the hours and days following a loss
Work as an End-of-Life Doula – providing physical, emotional, and informational support to healthy and infirm individuals as they explore end-of-life options
Work as a Death Doula – providing physical, emotional, and informational support in the final weeks and hours of life, as well as working with our popular Life Review method
Work as a Home Funeral Doula – providing physical, emotional, and informational support for home funeral. Most especially, you learn to create and hold the space for the family to take ownership of caring for their dead.
Work as a “What’s Next?” Post Loss Coach supporting individuals as they make important changes following loss
Work as a Professional Organizer or Re-organizer, helping individuals dealing with material artifacts after losing a loved one.
Momdoulary Method Complete 6-in-1 Death Doula Training could be the key to a fulfilling and flexible career that helps you feel more connected to both your work and your community. Combine any or all of the skills you have to provide service and earn a living in a variety of combinations, allowing for maximum earning potential, as well as expansive ways in which to serve those who turn to you.
