Common Crossroads in Labour and Birth
Birth Ways International Doula Training will cover specific strategies for some common crossroads in pregnancy, labour and birth. With the proper training and experience, a doula can anticipate, assess and assist with these crossroads.
Learn how the doula can help her clients navigate so they do not look back on these moments and decisions with regret and a sense of loss of control. These crossroads can be physical, emotional, medical, or related to power / communication struggles. Learn to anticipate, avoid or deal with issues that arise, using intelligence, active presence and intuition.
