The Postnatal Doula Academy is a postnatal training course with a difference.


You will submit an application form (to make sure that the right people are part of the Academy) and Grace will be in touch to arrange a phone call.


Once your application is successful, you will:

  • Attend the foundation weekend of training (more on that below), learning the key skills and knowledge needed to be a brilliant postnatal doula and the business tools to get you started,

  • Join a vibrant community of doulas committed to supporting one another on their journeys, and;

  • Get the opportunity to learn from some of the best experts in the postnatal world via monthly Zoom catch ups.


When we look at postnatal life and how to support people, we’ll look at it from a number of perspectives. It's no longer good enough to look at life through a heteronormative cis-gendered point of view. That’s just lazy.

The Details

Date: TBC
Location: Devon 
Price: £1000 (variable)
Submit your application to be part of the Academy
Once accepted onto the Academy, you'll be able to join the Facebook group to meet your fellow Academy buddies. You'll be set an assignment to be completed prior to the course.​
NOTE: We are currently planning for a face-to-face weekend of training in Devon, UK. This is obviously dependent on Covid-19 social distancing rules and restrictions. This may change closer to the time depending upon the situation.

The face-to-face weekend


Spend time getting to know others and reflecting on who you are and what brought you to the Academy. Begin to explore what Postnatal Doulaing is (and isn't!)


Deep dive into what it means to be a Postnatal Doula, why we're needed now more than ever and the essential skills and knowledge it takes to be a kickass Postnatal Doula.


Focus on the foundations of running your own business and the mindset needed to enable you to be a successful business owner. Reflect on what you've learned over the two days and look ahead to starting your Doula journey.  

After the course

  • A post-course reflection assignment.

  • Monthly zoom calls to continue your learning and development.

  • Spotlight Sessions featuring experts in the postnatal world.

Want in? Excellent.

To grab your spot at the next Academy, simply:

  • Complete the application form

  • Wait to hear from Grace, who will contact you and arrange to chat

  • Pay either the full investment, or begin a payment plan.

  • Count down the days until we meet in Devon!

Academy investment

The Academy is more than just a Doula course.


As a student of the Academy you will receive:

  • A foundation weekend of training

  • Monthly Academy calls, featuring postnatal experts

Want to talk about it?

I'd love to! Book a call and we'll have a natter over Zoom/phone (whatever works best for you!) I'd be delighted to chat about the Academy. I love talking about it!
