Doula courses and training can also include topics such as birth justice, baby massage therapy, birth activism, antiracism, abdominal binding, birth psychology, childbirth education, placenta encapsulation, physiologic birth, sustainability, Rebozo, midwifery models, among other subjects, much depending on the type of training institute.

In general, birth and postpartum doulas (also called birthworkers) are not legally required to be certified, and moreover, there’s no independent accreditation for doula training in the US. Nevertheless, you can get certified, but what exactly this certification entails depends on the training institute.

Certification may include extras such as code of conduct, Infant CPR, Lactation, First Aid certification, Childbirth Education, required reading material, hospital tours, a number of labor and birth attendances, and other things.

In any case, below then you’ll find an overview of doula classes and certification programs in and around Seattle, some of which also offer online classes and training.
