Helping Postpartum Doulas Succeed
At Homegrown Babies, we want to help new postpartum doulas succeed in all the ways that we can. Because of this, Homegrown Babies Postpartum Doula Trainings include mentoring for new doulas during and after the trainings themselves. This personalized support can take many forms. Included in the cost of your training is 30 days of mentoring support after taking the training by phone, email, or an inperson meeting (within Asheville) for a combined total of 1 hour of support from a certified doula. Most doulas need or want mentoring beyond the 30 days after their training, and below are other paid mentoring options offered by Homegrown Babies to support postpartum doulas in getting on their feet with an active doula practice.
Basic Distance Support: Phone and email support for 2 months or a total of 2 hours after your doula training. This means I am here to offer support as you establish yourself as a postpartum doula via email or over the phone, or take your call if you are with a client and have in-the-moment questions.
Basic Local Support: Attend one client appointment with a postpartum doula in Homegrown Babies, and have access to on-call support for 2 months or a total of 2 hours after your training.
Deluxe Support: Same as above plus an ongoing mentorship with a certified Homegrown Babies Postpartum Doula for up to 6 months , including as-needed support with clients and business setup, certification packet support, and the opportunity to attend postpartum appointments with your mentor.
