Australian Doula College
Honouring Life's Transitions
As Australia’s premier Doula training organisation, we proudly offer a variety of trainings and on going support for all Doulas, wherever they are drawn to work. That work transpires into education, support and continuity of care
for individuals and families through any one of life’s many transitions.
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.
Did you know that if you have an NDIS plan that is self or agency-managed, that you can utilise your funding to hire a Doula to support you? Our experienced Doulas can be hired through a private contract simply using their ABN. As you are self or agency managed you simply treat the Doula ‘package' in the same way as you do, any other service provider you choose to work with.
So no matter where you find yourself needing the emotional support and resourcefulness of a doula, we can be hired as a one off or walk along side you with an on going arrangement in place. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for further information or to discuss your needs.

I feel well prepared...
"Thank you, I feel I have such a comprehensive education. Looking through the resources that my workbooks will become. It shows just how much we have been taught and guided through. I feel well prepared and just want to keep learning, reading and building on what feels like a solid foundation."
