Join the ADC Community

At the Australian Doula College we strongly believe in the importance of ongoing support and education for those working in the doula space.  It is equally as important for people and their families to know their doula is updating their skills regularly and is part of a trusted and supportive community. Being a member of the ADC is a great way to remain supported and mentored while you are working as a doula. 

 

We value our members deeply because their participation and membership fees contributes to the College's ability to continue to elevate the profile of doulas and to advocate for better care for all people, across the spectrum of life as well as providing charitable, social and community minded projects. For example, The Doula Heart Network provides free doula services to those who would not otherwise have access to it and our Yothu Basket Project supplies much needed baby and mama goods to mothers and babies in North East Arnhem land. 

Members are also able to participate in our charity and community based offerings like the Doula Heart Network and Groundwork Program. Being a member gives you the opportunity to give back to the wider community,  be involved in programs that really do change people’s lives. This work is deeply important and your presence in our community is essential to our being able to continue the work we do.

​We thank all of our members for choosing to be part of this wonderful community, while doing their part to support and enhance the human experience, in life's big transitions. It is an honour to support our members, to share knowledge and to hold space for one another and help each other grow.
