Hi! I’m Adriana
I've been a birth and postpartum doula for the past three years and in this time I have attended countless deliveries. I've decided to pursue becoming a midwife as well but continue to teach the skills it takes to become a doula, which I love so much.
Doula Philosophy and the Training Academy was created in response to the need for doulas who are conscious, compassionate and seek justice.
This course has been curated with attention paid to every detail. I am looking forward to seeing you in class!
Doula Training Academy course curriculum is centered around the mission of cultivating conscious, compassionate, and capable doulas specializing in areas of social and reproductive justice. This is important to remember as students navigate the courses because it is connected to the individuals and families we serve at Doula Philosophy. Developing doulas under this mission is accomplished by converging evidence based knowledge, practices and research with the core values of Doula Training Academy. - Justice - Faith - Compassion - Growth In these courses, students will have the opportuntiy to bring in their prior knowledge and experiences as we explore topics and issues related to anatomy of pregnancy, pain management, and labor & delivery.
