Think that a career as a Death & Mourning Doula may be for you, but still on the fence about it?   This class may be for you!

Join us for a 3 week class, in which we explore all of the following:

  • Are you being called to this work?  How to begin discerning whether your fascination with this industry may be a call to pursue a new career path
  • Why are people needed in this role?  What about hospice, funeral homes, etc?
  • Are such doulas “anti” current services, such as funeral homes, embalming, traditional cemeteries, etc?
  • Understanding the Momdoulary Death Doula-Related Certifications, and how the different roles are expressed; what does it look like to work in each of these roles?
  • Why wrap all six certifications together?  Why can’t I just take the one or two I’m interested in?
  • Learn about the importance of the Momdoulary Method coaching model as the foundation for all six certifications
  • Understanding the nature and intensity of the training; are you prepared to take it on?
  • Exploring different ways to structure possible service offerings with the certifications
  • Exploring your local area market; is it ready for a Death & Mourning doula?
  • Are you ready to be self-employed?  Understanding the challenges that come with working for yourself
  • How will this work impact your lifestyle, and your family
  • Are you prepared for the work/life balance challenges of this industry?
  • Support systems
  • Plus, discover if an online learning format is for you!

The class will include the following:

  • Weekly online lesson “booklets” which introduce you to the topics
