I completed the Developing Doulas Birth and Postnatal Doula Preparation Course in September 2012. My background is as a registered nurse and I have a Bachelor’s of Technology in Nursing degree. As a doula, I work as a doula and despite my clinical training this is not something that I use in doula role. However, my background has given me the opportunity to work with lots of families and to do a variety of training that is useful and relevant to new mothers. For example,I have completed a UNICEF Baby Friendly Breastfeeding course as well as other regular breastfeeding training sessions.
