Doula training with The Australian Doula College 

Birth and Postnatal Doula Training

Doula training is possible throughout Australia and the world with the Australian Doula College.

The twenty modules that make up our comprehensive training can be delivered to you in a variety of ways.

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 entire course can be undertaken on our easy to navigate E Learning platform and we have a dedicated Correspondence coordinator to guide and support you though the training.

Our course becomes a journey for the doula and offers a holistic approach to pregnancy and birth and an opportunity for the doula to grow and understand how her life experiences and her beliefs can impact on the birthing woman and her partner.

We believe that it is essential to understand your own vulnerabilities and fears in order to be able to assist others though theirs. This is an intricate part of the course.


All of our facilitators and educators are doulas and all hold a Cert IV in Training and Assessment. Collectively, as doulas and educators we have over 100 years experience in birth and the post natal period. Our students are extremely well supported during the course and while undertaking their training births and have a trainer on call for them 24 hours, seven days a week.

If you have been thinking about becoming a doula then we would love to talk to you………..Our doula training is different to the others and we would be honoured for you to share your doula journey with us!

Doula and Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training now offered entirely online...

Doula and Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, ‘The Sahana of Birth’ is a Pregnancy yoga teacher and doula certification combined. It is a collaboration between Katie Rose, the founder and director of Everyday Sadhana and Bhakti Rose and Renee Adair, the founder and director of the ADC.
