This full spectrum training is an advanced stand alone class, but participants are best served when it is taken after our Labor and Birth Doula Training.
Our Advanced Full Spectrum Doula Training aims to prepare all birthworkers for supporting the full spectrum of reproductive experiences. In this course, we will expand upon the commonly used definition of Full-Spectrum to move beyond focusing solely on loss and abortion.
