How we support our community and Doulas
Doula training is possible throughout Australia and the world with the Australian Doula College. We cover a multitude of subjects starting at conception, working though the mechanics of labour, your fears and feelings, possible fears and challenges for parents, homebirth, hospital policies and procedures, post natal issues, breastfeeding and postnatal doula-ring, just to name a few.
The ADC’s unique in home education and support program is tailored to provide a solid foundation for our clients in whatever situation they find themselves in. The purpose of the program is to ensure mothers, families and individuals receive the personalised services they require to achieve what is most important to them, given their circumstances.
"I feel very proud to be a part of the college & to have undertaken my training with these amazing women. The course was empowering & transformative. A wonderful 20 week course that I would recommend to any woman. I feel calm, confident & prepared to support women throughout their pregnancy and birth as their doula."

Read Renee's story about her recent visit to the Northern Territory to work on the Galiwin’ku Djakamirr Project
"Our labour was a 37 hour marathon and we do not believe that we would have heldourselves together emotionally and mentally if we did not have Lisa's calming presence. We believe that all women who are about to go through labour would benefit from having a doula present. We cannot recommend Lisa and your services highly enough! (Mum)Lisa really helped me to get through this experience. I was very hesitate about having her but after the experience I cannot speak highly enough of doulas. (Dad)"
