The Association of Ontario Doulas is thrilled to have partnered with Medix College to provide Birth and Postpartum Doula Training to people interested in becoming doulas. Our Birth Doula training is taught by DONA approved trainers Stefanie Antunes and Melissa Cowl. Our Postpartum Doula Training is taught by CAPPA approved trainer Kimberly Healey-Fernandez. We're excited to help you move forward on the very special path of becoming a doula.
*A portion of each training will go back to the AOD to support member benefits.
Please check the DONA International and CAPPA websites for full information about current steps. When you leave our training you will be able to immediately work as a doula. That hands-on experience will be part of the steps to becoming a certified Doula.
Other Approved Training Organizations
If you would prefer to train outside the AOD we have approved a number of organizations that meet our strict training standards. In order to choose the best training organization for you, please examine each organizations vision and mission statements, speak to the trainers and decide which one best fits with you.
