What does it mean to be an Original Instructions Doula?

           The role of the Doula originally was occupied by many women in the community who had various pieces of knowledge about women’s reproductive health and how to raise healthy children. Inevitably, certain women would show particular skill for assisting during a difficult childbirth and providing care for a new family.

 Why is Herbalism an integral part of our Doula certification program?

     In order for Doulas to act as a true resource and advocate for mothers and their families we believe that they require at least a basic understanding of how to nourish, support and cleanse the female body in the same way our mothers have for generations; with the aide  of medicinal stews, teas, steams and baths.
