This structure allows us to dramatically reduce tuition on this offering. You will still receive access to a self-directed version of the Business Quick Start Class.

This 16 week program trains you in 5 Competencies:

PROJECT LIBERTY DEATH DOULA TRAINING CLASS — YES, TUITION FREE TRAINING!

Temporarily suspended — but there are other wonderful options, including free trainings! Click here to learn about our Pandemic Spring 2020 offerings..

This course is the result of Laura’s commitment to social supports for all. Upon considering how to create a better cultural relationship with Birth and Death, Laura realized the key was to creating birth and death doula supports available to all, via a free online training. If you wish to provide End-of-life and death doula support to friends and family, this course will give you the basics. Unlike our other trainings, it is entirely self-directed; you won’t have direct engagement with the instructor, but you WILL have extensive material, and you will have an automated response to your answers in class, so if you make an error, you will learn what the proper answer was, and why. This class IS intensive, and you will find all the content of our former 3-in-1 End-of-Life and Death Doula Training program here, tuition-free.

If you are looking to work as a doula, you are encouraged to enroll in one of our full-program courses following this training — you will receive a $500 discount on the tuition for either the 5-in-1 Modified Death Doula Training, or the Complete 6-in-1 Death Doula Training, regular or Special Edition, if you’ve successfully completed the Project Liberty training. The tuition-based courses will take you even deeper into the material, provide instructor engagement, and introduce you to the business side of the material, while also adding on 2 or 3 more areas of certification, providing a more comprehensive scope of offerings; the tuition-based coursesalso offer Momdoulary Method Certification, which can help demonstrate a scope and standard of practice for your clients; the Project Liberty Class DOES NOT offer Momdoulary Method Certificaiton, but it DOES provide a Certicate of Completion, demonstrating you’ve completed the training.

The Project Liberty Death Doula Course:

Not ready for our Complete 6-in-1 Death Doula Training For Certification or Modified 5-in-1 Training, but want to begin working with family and friends as a death doula? Then our Project Liberty Death Doula Certificate Course, which reflects our investment in cultural education related to death and end-of-life support and education, may be the right fit for you. 

Built around the unique coaching-based doula methodology found in our Complete 6-in-1 and Modified 5-in-1 Trainings, this is a self-directed ten-week online class, which will provide the basics of end-of-life and death doula basics, plus an introduction to home funeral doula support. This is a “lite” version of our trainings in these areas, but you may well find it suits your needs. If you find you want to take your work deeper, completion of this course will allow for a $500 discount from our 5-in-1 and 6-in-1 death doula trainings. You can also opt to take add on courses in the areas of Life Review Intensive, Self-Care for Care Professionals, Death Doula Discernment, and Creating Amazing Info Sessions to Market Your Business for only $70 per course, and the Business Quick Start Course for Doulas, for only $99, a special discount for those who have participated in the Project Liberty Program. 

This training walks you through  the basics of providing support in three areas:

  1. End-of-Life Doula – an introduction to providing physical, emotional, and informational support to healthy and infirm individuals as they explore end-of-life options, how to document them, and how to begin discussing their choices with loved ones.
  2. Death Doula – an introduction to providing physical, emotional, and informational support to those dying. Learn how to hold death preparation meetings, and discover the basics of our powerful Life Review Process  so you you help your clients create powerful connections across their life story, enabling them to write even more powerful closing chapters; learn how to provide support at a death vigil, and how to support loved ones who are present.
  3. Mourning Doula – providing physical, emotional, informational, educational, and logistical support to families who have just lost a loved one. Prepare to provide support and advocacy as family moves through the hours and days following a loss. You can provide protection at this sensitive time, and provide useful information, while supporting the family as they make more deeply conscious decisions in their time of grief, helping ensure they explore and execute best-fit choices for funeral, disposition, and a meaningful goodbye for the person they are grieving. Class covers enough elements of our Home Funeral Doula training to enable you to provide basic support for home funerals, too.
    The Momdoulary Project Liberty Death Doula Certificate could be your key to starting down the path toward a more empowered engagement with life and death, and an ability to support those you love during some of the most important moments of their lives, while also allowing you to explore whether or not this is potentially a goodcareer path for you. It will allow you to combine any or all of the skills you learn in order to provide flexible service and support options as you begin working as a Death Professional.

* This is a certificate class, not a certification training. Upon completion you will receive a certificate stating you have satisfactorily completed the Momdoulary Project Freedom Death Doula Training. You can technically use these skills to work in the field (so long as you meet any local area licensing requirements; only a small number of areas require licensing at this time), though we do recommend you take our fuller training, to provide more comprehensive support. Completion of this training will allow you to list on your website and in promotional materials that you are a graduate of our program, but you cannot state that you are “Certified” in our method. 

For many, however, this program will be enough to give them confidence in their ability to create important supports for family and family at difficult times.

* Terms and conditions apply.
