I love working around babies. It makes me happy to see a new mom feeling confident.
I love watching dads light up when they look into their baby’s eyes. Seeing a family come together is one of life’s wonderful things. I enjoy helping people.
Are these things that make you happy? Would you like to make money doing them? You can!
Working as a postpartum doula means that you get paid to support families when they bring home a new baby. Families need support in those first few months and that is what postpartum doulas offer.
A postpartum doula is a professional who supports the family with information, help around the house, knowledge and experience with babies, and non-judgmental support for finding their own way in parenting.
When a family brings home a new baby, they often find the first few weeks or months to be challenging. They have to learn new skills, help siblings adjust, keep up with the house, and still find some time for sleep.
A postpartum doula eases this transition for families. YOU can support families in finding the joy in a new baby and to discover tools that make life easier during this time. YOU have the potential to touch so many lives!
ABG training covers the significance of having postpartum doula support, practical hands-on support techniques, and the steps in how to create a business.
Our Training program is self-paced. It is perfect for self- motivated students who want a framework to guide them and the support of an established doula training community.
There is not a time limit to your training. You will come out of the training well prepared to support growing families in the ABG way.
I started Austin Baby Guru because I felt that it was important for growing families to get the support they needed. A few years after starting my postpartum doula business, I opened the ABG training because I wanted to help other women find the joy and satisfaction I had found in my job.
The program consists of
- an extensive reading list
- attendance of the ABG early parenting classes (breastfeeding, infant safety/CPR, and newborn care)
- community building/networking through our local doula association
- membership in our private Facebook group
- Becoming CPR certified (heartsaver)
- Working with families to gain experience
- Training with an experienced doula to learn about standards of practice, ethics, and running a doula business
You will receive guidance and support through the process.
Austin Baby Guru’s postpartum doula training and certification cost $320
