Our DTI2 trainings certify doulas for both birth and postpartum work, integrating much-appreciated flexibility into the private practice. Offering this flexibility is a priority for us because our doulas are rock star superhumans, often balancing doula work with life. DTI2 certification prepares them to work solely as birth doulas while still obtaining the education necessary to prep their birth clients for the transition into parenthood, or to practice mainly postpartum doula work but still be prepared to integrate the birth experience. Still, because of their dedication, many DTI doulas do both birth and postpartum work simultaneously throughout their careers.
Like with everything in life, balance is important. That’s how we look at the duality of autonomy and community in doula training. We’re not here to tell you what your individual career path looks like for you—you decide, and we’re here to support it. Our curriculum is meant to teach you business-savvy skills, not to standardize your personal brand. Creativity is a beautiful thing, so you do you, and we’ll be here with the moral (and tangible) support.
